    ok,I wasnt sure where to post this, but.....................................Do most tend to burn a candle in a wall sconce, like the fancy scrolled ones, or do most use them for decoration? thanks, dale

    As far as I know. People do tend to use sconces as decoration rather than burning candles in them. It also depends on the type of scronce it is. A scrolled sconce, i imagine, would just be for decoration. Hope this helps.

      The sconces I make use tea lights. They have been perfectly safe.
      Tea lights come with there own little cup to retain the melted wax till it is all bured up.
      You can get a candle cup for regular taper candles. Some have a little brass ferrule on the end.
      The most important thing to remember is never leave the candle unattended.

            I agree. They're much better than scrolls.

                The reason I'm asking is I am making a pair of sconces, and am considering acrylic mirror as part of the medium in making them. The candle would be approximatly 4 inches away from the acrylic, and before i go into production mode on this, I was wondering if my idea is stupid, and I should just opt for wood in its place. Glass mirror is not an option because of color, I want a colored mirror. Thanks, dale

                  Now I have the picture. Sounds like a great idea to me.
                  I hope you get some good answers on here.

                    Most of the heat from a candle will rise.
                    I don't think you would have too much problem with acrylic 4" away from the flame.

                    Maybe you could just run a test with the acrylic for several hours before you make the sconces.

                        Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
                        And on each cloud touching the body ?
                        I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

                        Thanks

                        I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                        Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                        What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                        Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

                        I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
