Looks good. I should make one of these for my wife. She loves to burn candles.

Very cool. Hope you don’t mind a little plagiarizing.

Very nice. They make great gifts. I made three of these for Christmas gifts, also out of maple and purple heart. My wife loves hers!

Nice work crimson … are the legs one piece or are there 4 individuals pieces there. Im in the process of making a few of these from some cutoffs, and have been trying to figuire the best way for the legs. My idea was to cut out 4 pieces about 3” long and rout a 1” slot in them on the router table.
