This is a terrible photo, but I’s too big for my light box.
It’s a cherry Shaker candlestand inspired by one made by Christian Becksvoort for an article in Fine Woodworking, years ago. It was about the second or third project I turned on my new lathe, and was the main reason I got started in turning, to turn parts for furniture, It didn’t take long to get hooked on turning, though. It’s cherry and very figured cherry for the top and finished with tung oil and wax.
Any comments are always welcome.

nice job.

would there be an easy way to make one of these without a lathe? the spindle doesnt look too complex. maybe rough it out with a bandsaw and then lots of sanding?

Nice shaker candle stand . This teaches individuals a number of great woodworking skills, I teach a class at my local community collage on how to make this stand. They have a classic shaker appeal and are fun to make.

Nice table. Love the Shaker style.

Mike Gager, I make these tables and don’t think you could get the same results without a lathe. Got any buddies with a lathe you could borrow some time on? The column is pretty much straight forward. You just need to get the ledge on the base of the column the right size and height.

Hope this helps.

Looks good!

I think Roy Underhill did something similar in one of “the Woodwright’s Shop” episodes.
