  • Butterflies-A Schwibbogen by Chase

    Hi Scrollers.


    As most of you know I design schwibbogens from patterns of other scrollers. I try to give credit to those pattern makers. However in the cutting of this schwibbogen I had a hard drive crash and the info was lost. I've tried to do the best I can to give credit. The large butterfly is from Chrestensen-Burghout designs; thanks Toni and Sue. The side butterflies I'm not sure. They came from a magazine or pattern vault, but which one? The bottom and center butterfly pattern is by Diana Thompson and purchased from Scroller. The pasties around the arch were given to me by a scroller from one of the forums, The Cafe I think.

    This may not be the most difficult schwibbogen I have ever cut, but it is in the top three. The design was fun and challenging too.

    As you can see, there are two lighted versions. The customer wanted colored lights and I'm here to please. They don't show up all that well in the picture. However, traditionalist that I am, I prefer the clear light version.


    Comments welcome.

          Chase, I'm with the rest of them, that sure came out nice. I'm with you in liking the white lights the best.

          I really like your designs and your cutting on these, they are something I remember from my grandmother's house when I was a kid. If my list of things to make/cut/build/fix ever gets small enough, I'm going to have to cut one or more.

                  I'm the odd one out...I love the colored lights. Makes it really unique. But all of the choices are winners and I would love any of them! I thought I knew it all (LOL) but was not familiar with Schwibbogen. I'll have to investigate that.
