This is my version of a Shaker Candle Stand. My wife saw some pictures on pinterest and asked if I could make her one. I said sure! it does not look to hard! So as I got into it and studied some projects that I had seen on the internet and designed this one, I found out that I used every type of joint and technique known to woodworkers. From Sliding, half blind, and through dovetails, to rabbets and dadoes, to radius tongue and groves, to spindle turning and more. I think that I learned more about and improved my woodworking skills on this project more than any other that I have worked on. It is made from solid Cherry and finished off with 3 coats of Tung oil. Thanks for looking!
Here are a few images from the workshop:
