In 1955 I was stationed in Portsmouth, NH in the Navy Yard, on a submarine (USS Angler ss240). It was the weekend and nothing was going on. There were three of us, and one guy was telling us about the candelabras that he had seen in town for 180.00 dollars each, and he drew a picture of them. The other fellow said, we can build them, and we started out. We had plenty of brass stock aboard, brass pipe and brass washers. We cut the rod to size and flattened the ends, bent them to form and silver soldered the parts together.we the had 6 candle holders, two apiece. when they were all shined , we sprayed them with lacquer, and mine have been the same ever since.
I’m sorry their not woodworking, but I thought they might be interesting. Should I shine them up or leave the Petrina on them?
