this center piece was inspired from Huckleberrys video and from woodsmith magazine issue # 173. I did change things a little bit, I did not have what I wanted to use any thicker than 13/16” so I made a split level, it gives an appearance of floating, all edges of the upper board were bevel chamfered, the gap is held together with 5/8” cherry dowels the legs are laminated cherry, the top and bottom boards are qrtr sawn sycamore, I only made 5 holes for candles, as in photography, an odd number works best usually, it helps to draw the eye to focus on the main subject.
no stain was used, I used Charles Neils sealer, then Formbys Low Gloss Tung Oil.
thanks for looking.
