I made this Shaker style candleholder to hang on a peg rail in our rec room and hold an antique candlestick. It’s made from walnut and the candlestick is about 120 years old I think, but I’m just guessing. It was inherited from my mother’s aunt. It is about 12” tall by 4” wide.

Beautiful Piece!

To me there is nothing more elegant than the Shaker design.
