Plate Stand Made with Proxxon Scroll Saw

I have a passion for lovely china, and enjoy displaying unique pieces. So, I decided to make a wooden plate stand using my Proxxon scroll saw.

I prepared my pattern as detailed in my business card holder post. Here are the two pattern pieces, ready to cut.

I can't tell you how much I love this Proxxon scroll saw!! It makes creating ever so much fun—and it's easy!!

When the pieces where cut, I removed the patterns, and used my Proxxon Delta sander to sand the pieces to a smooth finish.

The next step was staining and adding a finish coat to the pieces. I used a blend of raw umber and black-green acrylic paints that I rubbed on with a soft cloth. After those paints dried, I added highlights with golden rub-and-buff. The last step was sealing the pieces with matte PPA.

Here is the plate stand pattern in SVG and PDF formats.
