door bell cover

A friend asked for a replacement door bell cover located in the entryway of his house.  The old one was a simple one piece plastic shell that was cracked, chipped and painted over.   He wanted something with an art deco style and would be the first thing guests see once they stepped in the front door.

His suggestion to use the familiar art deco fan motif gave me the idea to use a combination of black walnut and a bird's eye maple veneer to help give a clear definition to the lines of the fan and to give it a three-dimensional quality.
