This is the third plywood scale candle stand. When I made the first one, I had cut timber for three sets as shown in photo #5 and that was more than a year ago, I finished the third one yesterday. As I noticed, it was an eye catcher when we had demos but it did not cutch their wallets very often.

Neat idea, is it free enough to tip back and forth as the candles burn?

Great idea and execution, I like it.

I know what you mean, I have a few items that generate a lot of comment at craft fairs, but very few sales.

Another great piece of work Sam, you really bring the best out of plywood. That certainly is a great design.

Very COOL!

If one of the outside candles burns faster than the other, it will get lighter faster and thus get pushed Upward, correct? :)

Of course, As a mater of fact, the three stands are well balanced without candles but they loose that balance when you put the candles on them, though, they are the same size and brand new ones. I don’t know why. I noticed people like to see them tilted.
Thank you all for your comments.
