Hello All,
First project posted….done some other stuff but absolutely a newbie here. Made this as a Christmas gift. It is curly maple and walnut. I think the square votives are too large for the holder and I’ve ordered some smaller ones and I will probably recess those a bit.

Well done, looks free flowing. Should make a great gift.

I like it. Did you go off a plan or “off the cuff”?

Nice combo of angles and arcs.

Thanks for the comments…definitely off the cuff. I wanted it to be a bit different and have a light feel to it. Thought a cantilevered look might accomplish that.

At first I thought it was a cribbage board. Wouldn’t that be different….......

I like the wood selection, it compliments the design. I agree about making recesses to hold the candles. I am always afraid of the glass votives sliding off the wood and starting a fire. What are the overall dim’s?
