Red face italiante chandelier

Hi guys,

Soon i'll start a new work, i'll make an italiante chandelier. I bought the pattern by Wildwood designs. I count the parts, there will be 341 parts!!!to cut. So it will be a very big project, and i'll post loooooots of pictures. My question is what wood would you guys or girls use for it? I think to use poplar because it will be very heavy after all. The patern is made for 4mm and for one center piece it's 5mm and for some tiny things 2mm( i think to use birch plywood for that). I prefer to make it in one color of wood, maybe the wings for the angels a little darker or so.
For the moment i let the pattern scan so now i have it in pdf and i can make it in any size i want to.
I don't think it will be finished before the end of the year.......

Let me tell you the picture is wrong. It is out of the catalog but it is not built right, here are some better pictures. I sent the pictures in that are in the catalog, just didn't have a good picture of the right one when I sent them.

You can see more picture here. PicBasket

You must have some very long winter nights in Belgium to take on a project that large. Good luck and let us see the pictures of your progress. That will turn into a very larger picture album also. I would like to try something like that but my double wide is not big enough for it.

Hey Rick, YOU'RE A ROCK!!!!!!!!
Thank you so much for the pictures!! I was searching on the internet for better pics, but couldn't find them. And on the pattern they are black & white so also not clear. I can see that i can assemble him in two different ways.
I you have more pics they are very welcome, i'll need them very much. With the pattern there is notting says how to assemble, i have to find out myself
But i'll go for it and i hope to put electric in it, and not candles (that will be a challenge too!) Again thanks alot!

WOW! You're going to be very busy for a long time. As for wood, my preference would be cherry or mahogany. I like the warm color of those woods. It will, of course, be gorgeous no matter what wood you use.

Ya know yir right Frieke. Low voltage lights that look like candles would be a lot safer to use. Good luck.

Well, Theresa, this will be my challenge, i've seen you started yours and i wish you all the luck. I still have to finish sanding my toucan (i want to resaw a few pieces), but also i'm busy making photocopys and search for the best wood(i can get).
I can't wait start cutting. I have to admit that i found it more difficult to start the toucan, then to start on this chandelier. With intarsia you have to think about the shape and so, and i have only to follow the pattern. Assembling, well euh, i'll take care of it one piece at the time!

Frieke,
The pattern has the slots numbered sort of so that helps a lot. I can get more pictures if needed. I ran a dowel up the center and then drilled the dowel for pins below each disc. That supports the weight all the way down.
There is one peice sort of oval shaped, about the size and shape of an egg, that I never found a place to put it. If you find a home for it I may cut them again, cause I threw the original ones away. Also the original pattern calls for the overlay peice on the long arms on just one side. I made twice as many and put the overlays on both sides of the long arms, just made it look more balanced.
I made mine form 1/8" BB plywood then stained it with a can of Deft spray stain. Then finished it off with Deft clear gloss. There are a lot of very fine cut areas that hardwoods might be very delicate in. Nobody has made any comment about the plywood, there is so little edge showing and so thin that it is really not that noticable when you look at the whole project. The spray stain sort of covered the edges too.
It took me just over 100 hours to do this project. About the same time it took to build the Dome Clock.
