Scale model of Spanish bell tower


Recommended Posts

Guy Gadois

The plans for this tower were obtained from a site offering scroll saw patterns. There was a considerable amount of time using the scroll saw as all cutouts had to be done this way or with a fret saw.

 

The materials used were 1/4" Mahogany plywood and Basswood. The original plans called for everything being done using the scroll saw but the spindles and columns (120 of them) were turned on a mini wood lathe. There is a bronze bell but it doesn't show in the photos. Height is 60".

 

Cheers, Guy
