USING NEW GLASS PIECES FOR THE BOTTOM TWO ROWS OF BRANCHES

If you haven't cut the bottom rows (Row 6 and Row 7) of branches yet, or want to replace the incorrect ones, here's how to adjust the pattern pieces:

1) The pieces in Row 6 should have a top dimension of 1". The pieces in Row 7 should have a top dimension of 1 1/16" (one and one sixteenth inches). The illustration here shows the new shapes with the incorrect shapes shown as a gray dashed lines. It doesn't look like a big difference but, unfortunately, when multiplied by 10 or 12 pieces in the ring, it affects the shape of the branch rings significantly.

2) You can redraw the pattern pieces yourself using the dimensions above, or you can CLICK HERE to view a PDF file with the correct pattern pieces. If you download and print the PDF file, you will, of course, have to make sure you are printing it at 100% of its original size. We have included a ruler on the PDF so you can check your printed copy to make sure it is the correct size.

3) Using the corrected pattern pieces, you can build the tree branch rings and assemble them on the original structure as shown in the book.
