Made these as some small gifts for some co-workers. These are some very quick projects, and I’m happy with how they came out. I borrowed from a number of designs I’ve been seeing, so a “Thanks” is in order to all those who have posted before with something similar.

Quick Rundown:
1 – Walnut/Padauk
2 – Walnut/Cherry
3 – Cherry/Padauk
4 – Cherry/Curly Maple
5 – Cherry/Walnut
6 – Walnut/Purpleheart

Thanks for looking.

These are all very well made and quite a nice design as well : )
Added to my favorites just in case you want to share your specs with us !
These are the first candle holders that I’ve ever wanted to try to duplicate : )

Thanks for the kind words all.

Dusty – some estimates of the specs:
Platform is about 5.5’’ long by 2.75’’ wide
30 degree bevel on top, 15 on bottom (though these figures are from different axes since I flipped the piece while cutting. The point is they are varied)
15 degree dado with matching angle on legs to sit flat.
I experimented with angles on the ends of the legs, though I think my preference is for squared-off.
Hope that helps.
