Ratchet candle stand made of Wisconsin Cherry. I like to refer to this piece as my colonial dimmer switch … Hey, turn up the light!
The ratchet mechanism allows for four height positions …
The 4/4 side rails are morticed into the 8/4 base and through morticed into the rail at the top …
For the top I edge jointed two similar pieces of 4/4 and hand planed them down to 3/8”. Perhaps I should have considered resawing and bookmatching … but I think it looks just fine! (sorry for the poor quality of this photo)
The finish is but a light coat of bee’s wax. Thanks for looking … ALL comments welcome!
