I made this windsor candle stand as a Christmas gift for my wife. It is from John Kassay’s book on American Windsor Furniture and I followed his measured drawing. It is cherry, finished with BLO and clear shellac. The joints are pegged or wedged. I was very pleased with how close I was able to turn the legs to the pattern and how closely they match each other. It is a bit difficult to ream such a thin top to the correct, matching angle for the legs. Luckily my son provided a secong set of eyes. The top is 12 5/8” around and the last picture shows the other “big” gift I got her for Christmas … “Morgan”, all 3 lbs, 1 oz.
