This is a candlestick made from padauk and walnut measuring ten inches tall and three and a half inches wide. This was made using a technique called inside-out turning where you cut a design, split the turning apart, assemble the outside as inside, and turn again to get openings. The finish is polished water varnish.

I like the design very much. You did a great job of turning. I think that the end result would have looked better if you had used one wood instead of two different woods.

Those are some very nice candle holders. You were spot on with the different woods it gives it a great look.
