This is my first attempt at a candle holder. Made with black walnut and curly maple. Finished with an oil/varnish blend, topped with shellac and rubbed out with steel wool.

I found some pretty good figure in the piece of walnut and thought this would be a great way to highlight it.

I love the walnut/maple combination, and you’ve done it justice! I also like how you suspended it—very cool!

thanks Dean. I thought it would be more interesting than “feet” and more of a challenge to build as well. I used C-A glue (superglue) to build the suspension and attach it to the candle holder.
