I made these twin luminary nightlights for a good friends twin grandchildren’s 1st Birthday.

I used some white oak for the sides and mahogany for the tops and bases.
I book matched the oak for the four sides. This made each lamp a twin of the other.I liked that idea even tho the twins themselves aren’t identical.

I scroll sawed the teddy bears using a pattern I found online and they’re lit using display light fixtures with 7 watt nightlight bulbs inserted into the bases.

The finish is just some Watco Natural Danish Oil.

I wish I had taken some pics of the assembly so you all could see how they went together. but I was pressed for time to get them done and clean forgot! So you’ll have to be satisfied with some pics of the recipients!

Thanks for the comments guys!

It was a rush job, so there are things I would have done differently if I had the time to plan. All in all I’m happy with the way they turned out.

Ron-I’m still very new to scrolling and use spiral blades for almost everything. It’s not overly hard, but getting the technique and feel down is slow in coming to me. I know it will come at some point!
