Made this a while back. The candle can be lifted w/ the dowel in order to light and extinguish the candle.

That is very nice, does the inside get sooty at all from the candle?

very nicely done. real class. i found these plans in an old issue of fine woodworking. the only thing i see missing is the copper cover for the flame vent hole. these were used during the civil war by the troops for light and some warmth. they also had a bail handle.

@wiser1934 Watch the video in the description. This was modeled after an antique barn candle holder that I found at an antique store.

Very nice candle holder! It’s nice to see people making items of older design; it keeps them alive.

Just watched the vid for this. Looks like a really good way for me to get some mortise/tenon practice in.

Also, I noticed you didn’t put this on Youtube. Smart move, as the Safety Monitor Squad that frequently plagues Steve Ramsey would have crucified you!

Have your say...
