Candles On A Curve

These votive candle holders are from a design published in the Wood Magazine November 2002 issue. The original design was five candles, but my wife and I like it better in a three-candle version.

The first photo is one I made for my wife. The piers, bases and candle rests are walnut; the rails are curly maple.

The second photo shows one of two identical pieces I made for neighbors. All components are made of cherry.

The third one consists of walnut piers, bases and candle rests with maple for the rails. My wife’s mother got that one.

These items aren’t major woodworking efforts, but are a bit tedious for someone like me who can be all thumbs at times!

Nice work. I wonder if you could dispense with the piers and have the curved rails land on the supporting surface (table), with the candle rests serving to connect the two rails.

Like your version on 3 candles. Great use of contrasting woods and finish. Great job!
