Arts and Crafts Lighting - SS Helped out a lot
While not strictly a scroll saw project I used my scroll saw to create the router template guides needed to create the cloud-lift pattern common to A&C style furniture. So, here is a prototype of a series of stained glass chandeliers I am in the process of making; I did these with simple Home Depot common pine shelving with a basic shellac finish. The others will be white oak and the stained glass panels far more intricate. This was meant to be a proof of concept before committing to a design and cutting a lot of materials. The SG panel is a simple knock of on the FLR style. The others I have made are more intricate in the Art Nouveau style. The bulbs are 100 watt CFL with a Leutron Maestro dimmer so they can be lowered to a nice level for a dinner. I still have to put some of the wood plugs in to cover the mounting holes. The light is hung by leather straps that I riveted.
All in all I liked it enough that I put it up in the dining room. The holes in the ceiling are the old 1960 canister style recessed lightning I am replacing. I will be covering these up with framed A&C Motawi tiles such as seen in the attachments.
