My wife and I decided that this set of candleholders would make very good Christmas gifts, so I made several sets at once to minimize set-up time.
Joinery is elegant; mitered corners held together with only glue makes for pretty pieces. This project taught me a new way to “clamp” a project … rubber bands were used to keep the wood in place as the glue dried, first on the oak pieces and then on the walnut cross pieces mounted in the windows.
I used red oak and walnut, finished with tung oil.
