These candlesticks are turned from Cherry, and are based on a project from Woodcraft Magazine. The finger ring on the Jack-be-Nimble style candlesticks is also Cherry. A small slot is cut in the side of the dish to accept the ring, and the joint is reinforced with a small dowel.
I started out to make 12 with finger rings. In the end I had 10 with finger rings, one that the dish had to be turned down too small for a finger ring (the last picture), and one in the scrap bin.
I don’t do a lot of turning, but I really enjoy it. These were a fun challenge.
