candle holder made out of maple, purpleheart, with walnut feet.
I was just messing around trying to figure out how to do a few things and came out with a candle holder.
First time trying bent lamination, that was sort of frustrating, but I like the way it turned out. Got to use my bandsaw, still trying to learn how to use that thing properly. I do have to say since I got it I have hardly turned on my table saw.
Also found out that if you take a heat gun to purple heart it really turns purple fast, and maple burns easily.
Overall I learned a lot doing this little project, mostly that I really need to take my time with sanding and finishing, there are a lot of mistakes that could have been avoided.
