Night Light

Light up the night with four interchangeable scroll saw patterns featuring enchanting scenes that are sure to please your child.

This night light is just a box with the sides, top, and bottom made from solid wood. What makes it interesting is the interchangeable front panel that screens the light shining from a small bulb inside. We designed this night light with four of these scroll-sawn hardwood panels. Then, depending on your mood or the season, you can slide one in front of the light, and store the others in a compartment in the back of the box. We’ve included four examples for the panels in the night light. Each has a magical quality that will look nice in a child’s bedroom or sitting on a hallway table or stand. If you’re artistic, it would be easy to come up with hundreds of different ideas for your own panels.
