Step 1: Planning and Cutting
At first, I drew a rough sketch of the arch and its features. I also created the star with a rough drawing. The size and complete shape I drew on the wood I was using and cut out the pieces with a jigsaw by hand.
Because I had a little material left over I decided to create another piece in the shape of an angle.
Step 2: Holes
The star and angle were rather easy because it was only cutting out one piece and then drilling three holes for candles to put in.
Step 3: Arch
For the arch, I needed to add holes to fix the arch bridges on the bottom stand which was going to hold it together. Therefore I used a dowel for quick fixing and then added screws to make it hold entirely.
Step 4: Varnish
The last part was to varnish the products with either a grey or clear Lasur. Depending on how strong the color should be I put the varnish on once or twice.
