In decorating my golf man cave, I finally got around to making the wall sconces. I still have 4 more to do, but they will be the same style with different silhouttes.

The frame is 3/4” Cherry, and the silhoutte is scroll sawed 1/8” ply, and painted with a hammered metal type rattle can. They look like they’re hammered copper.

The glass i got from a local stained glass distributor. Each sconce uses 2 sq feet of glass (1/8” thick). I picked out the cheapest glass they had, so there’s $12 worth of glass in each.

The front and sides are beveled 14 degrees. They’re about 13” wide and 12” high, maybe 6” deep at the deepest. I have them on dimmers with a 60 watt bulb. They’re open on the top and bottom.

Each frame piece is an individual cut, so I built a few jigs to speed up the production process. The back is 3/4” cherry as well, since it can be seen.

I neglected to ask you long ago when I first saw this, how did you join the corners and the panels to each other?

Pure butt joint, Doug. Each side and front is it’s own panel, then the sides are glued all the way down the length. You can’t really tell there’s a glue line on the side.
