Great stand, nicely done. I like that design in projects. Thought of a section on a cane, if it’s strong enough.
Cool man, welcome to LJ’s…..............

I made a left and right threader candle holder, mainly just to do it. I bought a book by Stuart Mortimer, and had to try out turning open twists on something. I had some cherry left over from my daughter’s bed that had straight grain so I used it. mtnwild, the open barley twist takes away most of the strength of the wood. You could cut just regular barley twists in a walking stick though.

Twists are a blast to do, I just started making twisted vessels after I took a class with Stuart this fall. He is a great guy and an amazing teacher. Nice candle holder, keep them comin.

Did you cut this on a Legacy lath or something else ?
-- Have a great day.

@grosa, I turned it on my Grizzly lathe. The actual barley twist is hand work using the lathe as a rotating clamp to form the splines with a back saw, chisels, files and sanding.
