I made two of these candle holder’s as a Christmas presents to family members. Inspiration was several pictures I saw of this on lumberjocks. Imitation is the highest form of flattery! Thank you to those individuals. I did not have any specific measurements to work off of, so I pretty much built the size of the holder based on the glass holders I purchased from my local 99 cent store. Inlay and legs are African Mohagany and Maple. Main board is 13.5” L x 5” W. Inlay is 1” W. Legs are 1” thick, 1.5” W and 1 3/4” tall. Rabbet on legs is 3/4” which was glued onto the board. Finish was poly/blo/min spir mixture. Paste wax was added before I gave finally gave them to the recipients.

Tuefel, this is very nice and makes a wonderful gift and I’m sure that the recipients were very happy to receive them.
