Persian overmantel



 This is an alluring Persian overmantel, originally conceived to hang over a fireplace in a Victorian house. It is basically a large frame adorned with cavities and shelves where diverse objects can be shown. The pattern is based in an old English design from the beginning of the XX century that I have entirely reconstructed in the computer. Every detail has been taken into account to make mounting and assembling easy. The largest rear piece has been divided in components that can be made with an 18 inches scroll saw. The overmantel has to be completed with a central frame and three mirrors or painted panels.

 The pattern has been designed to use 3/16 inches wood or 5 or 6 mm wood. By scaling the pattern appropriately any other wood thickness can also be used. These are the measures of the overmantel depending on the wood thickness you use:

  Height Width Depth
1/4 in. wood 52 in. 64 in. 7,6 in.
3/16 in. wood 39 in. 48 in. 5,7 in.
5 mm. wood 104 cm. 128 cm. 15 cm.
6 mm. wood 125 cm. 154 cm. 18 cm.

The pattern is computer made, which provides total precision, and nicely printed for convenient scrolling. Click here to buy this pattern. Write me to info@finescrollsaw.com for any questions.
