    Candle sticks and picture frame

    Hi,
    I just finished these four candle sticks and
    a picture frame.
    All the candle sticks have a hidden old Mexican
    coin.
    Best regards
    Alfredo

    Very nice. Your consistency in turning all of them is very good.
    What kind of wood did you use?
    Is the hidden coin a Mexican tradition?

    Frank,
    the candle sticks are made of Red cedar and mahogany was used for
    the picture frame.

    Mexican tradition ?
    No it was my solution to make this part of this project.
    Perhaps it is not the best solution but I liked it
    because I made it by myself.
    Regards

    Alfredo Very nice job The Candlesticks almost look like you used a duplicator, and the matching Picture frame makes a great set. Thumbs up

    Beautiful Alfredo. Candle holders almost look like you used a duplicator. Very nicely done.

    Great work, Alfredo. The candlesticks are very consistent and nicely shaped. The frame make a nice companion to the candlesticks, too. I also like the wood block you used to shape the metal parts of the candlesticks.

    Thanks for your kind comments.
    I am in the north of Mexico, visiting my mother.
    I had a very nice tripo with my wife and children.
    My mother is very happy with
    the presents.
    She is very proud of me.
    Best Regards
