Another attempt at turning. The candle holder is reversible, slightly different shapes on the top or bottom.

The wood is Walnut 4” High and 3 1/2” wide, sanded to 800 and finished with shellac and wax.

This is a nice piece, Tony. Making it reversible add an interesting touch to it as well. Seeing posts like this make me regret not having a lathe in my shop. I am sure you had fund doing this.

Another nice project, Tony! I like that it is reversible. I had planned to give candlesticks as Christmas gifts this year, but didn’t get them done.

Tony, the walnut and white candle are a perfect combination. I love the simplicity of the shape- it makes for a classical design.

By golly, Tony, that’s a dandy gift idea. I might have to steal this one for next Christmas.

Very neat idea Tony.
I was thinking of making a few pieces like that for serving plates to raise them off the table to hold jellies, pickles etc.
