I continue to “play” with my Craftsman Router Crafter and try some different things. Pix #1 is a 3-flute, open center candlestick. Pix #2 shows two short candle holders with no special ornamentation. Pix #3 and #4 are of a mug tree. I used shaker pegs for the “limbs” and I think something else would be better. Will have to experiment. The last two pictures is of one of a pair of candlesticks I made with both a taper and a “pineapple” pattern. These sort of evolved. Soon after I got my machine I turned the two pieces with the “pineapple” but the top was too small to drill for a candle. I just let them sit. Recently I finally bought some candel cups and just screwed them to the top, plus I turned a piece of cedar to make a base for each. I’ll keep playing and learning. All items are sprayed with several coats of shellac, then gone over with steel wool and a polishing wax applied.
