The legs were tough, I’ll admit it. I turned the center columns about 7-8 yeas ago and my wife has been after me to finish them every since.

The wood is maple, hard maple for the top and column, silver maple for the legs, the finish is a semi-gloss polyurathane

These are fun projects and a lot of techniques involved a great learning project. I teach a class on how to make a candle stand similar to this one.
