I ran across this candle holder in woodsmith magazine #182. My original thought was to make this out of a nice, figured, piece of curly maple that I had been saving for a small project like this. After getting the materials together, I did not think the 4/4 curly maple was thick enough to get the look I wanted to achieve. I decided to laminate some 5/4 cherry to the desired thickness instead. The legs are black walnut cut on a 10 degree angle to match the angles on the cherry base. I finished the project with couple coats of Tung oil.

Thanks for looking!

I saw the same plans and saw the video when they built it on TV so did my version which is a lot smaller!
Plans offer a lot of interpretation for us to start a new project!

Your centerpiece turned out very nice! Thanks for sharing!

Your work is both beautiful in design and functional as well.

Also, welcome to a fellow Etsy shop owner. All your items on your Etsy site look very nice. I opened
