My wife enjoys burning candles so I looked through many plans and photos and came up with this.
I just glued up 4 frames with a dado on the lower rail for the base… and the base has a rabbet on 4 sides to accept the bottom of the glass. I glued up the top and cut some bevels on the table saw….it’s attached with tabletop fasteners so if the glass ever breaks it can be removed. The antique looking glass (called seedy) along with the dividers give it an interesting “window” effect when lit.
As you can see in the photos I made 2 of them. One is oak with the glass in it, the other is maple and dyed to match a coffee table I built last year. I haven’t put any glass this one because my wife seems to like it without but I may convince her to go with the glass or perhaps some punched copper even!
This design can also be used with LED lights or a corded candelabra light mounted through the base if you prefer not to burn candles.
Thanks for looking!
