This is the second Scale Candle Holder, same design of the first one but made of plywood. Also, I used fancy thumb tacks to stop the pins and hide their entrances, photo #3 and three candle cops to take long candles, photo # 4.
I cut two sets of PW, just in case of making any mistake but I did not use the second set and left it to work on it in the future when I ran out of new idea, photo #5
I know, surely, someone will like it but I’m not sure about the others hoping they will like it as well.

I never doubted it was what you said it was, but I’m glad to see the glue-up in the picture because my mind kept saying ” No way that graining is ply !”. It’s gorgeous ! love it.

Awesome! Question for you…what grade of plywood do you use? Not knowing much about your process, I’d wonder how you deal with voids etc in the plys.
