I made a Shaker candle stand for a friend, but all her furniture is Arts and Crafts quarter sawn white oak. So, here we have the melding of these two styles.

I used Bob Lang’s suggested A&C finish:

Day 1: apply walnut stain, let stand 15 minutes and wipe off
Day 2: apply Dark Walnut Danish Oil, let stand 15 minutes and wipe off
DY 3: apply one coat of Zinnser Amber shellac (I sprayed so I thinned it a bit and applied 3 coats).

Really nice. Dr. Frankenstein would be envious that your creation turned out so much more elegant than his.

Frankie’s OK. But, his craftsmanship sucks.

It’s more or less a standard shaker candle stand—I think the top is 17-18” diameter. Can serve as a side table.
