This walnut candlestick holder was made from a walnut tree that was removed from a site that I needed to build a log cabin. The building lot was located in eastern PA. Once milled, that tree provided enough fine wood for many projects.
After the lathe work was complete, I had my oldest daughter help me with trig work. We drilled spindle holes at equal 1/7th’s of a circle in the proper ascending intervals all the way up the center shaft (mast). Dowels and candle cups were fastened ahead of time and then glued into the shaft holes after staining.
