Based on a u tube video by Dewayne Colwell
These candle sticks are made from Sapele and stand approximately 12 1/2” tall and 2 3/4” at the widest. Tools used are spindle roughing gouge, spindle gouges, skew chisel, parting tool and carving chisels. Finish is sander sealer and canuba wax polished on a three wheel system.
This turning involved involuted turning as well as a little carving to get the shape at the top of the heart shape. The base is turned separate from the main stem.
I was not happy with the flat areas he left the heart shape so I set to them with the carving chisels to define the outer shape of the heart at the top as well as change some of the other shapes above and below the heart also I wanted a full foot on mine.
