I had been making candle holders of a similar design and was selling them at a local craft show. A lady came up and asked if I could make a Menorah. Why not! She gave me a few guidelines to make it kosher and we agreed that I would call her when I was done. Two weeks later I was able to call her and let her know that not only was it done but she could choose from any of the 5 I had made. It was a wise call on my part since she decided to buy 3 of them and give 2 to friends.
The arms of the Menorah pivot on a dowel assembly in the base. The arms can be turned to any configuration. Brass ferrules are recessed into the tops of the arms to hold the candles and to provide a little barrier for dripping wax.
A natural stain was topped off with 3 coats of polyurethane for the finish.
