I have seen quite a few of these out there and decided it would look good on my table. I made this from well, I can’t remember what the base is, and the feet are walnut. Right from the pages of Wood Smith magazine. Still can’t recall that darn wood.

Im going to make one of these one day. The only thing I dont like about the WS plans are the 6 candles. Personally I think and odd number looks better, so i redesigned it in sketchup for 5 candles.

the basewood is really nice looking, has a neat texture to it..

This is a nice interpretation of the Woodsmith project.

What type of finish did you put on it?

Hi Huckleberry! Very nice piece; nicely executed. The walnut with the “whatchamacallit” are nice contrasting woods. Are the holes made with a forstner bit? And, is there a functional purpose to the “seam” that runs down the middle?
