this is a stand i made to display some candles on, i was given a very special gift from sheila Landry, and i wanted it put in a special place, so it will go here on top and i will display it along with some new candle boxes i made, but i will post them separate from this, ok, this project is made from three woods, walnut , cherry , and maple, the sides are walnut and the shelves are made from cherry, and there is a maple band one each side of this piece in each leg, the screw holes are plugged with walnut plugs, and it is finished with three coats of lacquer, i really enjoy doing this project and feel its a proper place to display some special work and a wonderful gift. thanks you for looking…grizzman

Beautiful result and great craftsmanship Grizz. The wood combo and the pegs really look good together. I liked your photo set-up too. Looks very professional.

I’m pretty sure Grizz doesn’t use plans. Pretty amazing, to me !

Yet another beauty, Grizz. You just keep bangin’ ‘em out, and I’ll just keep telling you how great they are.

Deal ???

It’s a beautiful piece Grizz. The color combinations are eye-catching, particularly the maple against the walnut. The feet are unique and add a classy touch to the stand.

That looks like a church kneeler for mice!! Seriously… beautiful wood and a nice build (on the candleholder, not you! ;-)
