This is the first hollow spiral I have done with my Craftsman Router Crafter. This was made from a piece of black walnut from a 100+ year old sill log from an old house I tore down. The first photo was taken without the flash and captures the true color. The second photo taken with the flash makes it easier to see some detail.

Very nice candlestick. Was it made entirely with a router?

Nice! These sure require a lot of sanding, don’t they!

Nice job. I thought you made 2 until I read the narrative. Guess I’d better keep mine. I have never used it yet ;-))
