This is a three legged candle stand windsor style table made in genuine mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla). I think genuine mahogany is the finest carving wood making its hand turned profiles crisp, strong, and clean. Construction features through, tapered, wedged, mortise, and tenon construction. The finish is a multi step traditional process that makes this prized wood look brilliant.
If anyone wants a turning pattern and construction details for this I would be happy to share though I do need to put them in a PDF file so it could take a bit. :)
I got a question about this so here is a blog post about the drilling of the stretchers.
