    Candle Holders

    A little diversion from the ongoing Pub Chair project (to be posted on completion in 3 to 4 weeks) .. make some prototypes to get the daughter's approval for the upcoming wedding. So, here is what they will look like .. Click image for larger version.

    uprights will be cherry or maple .. maybe some of each ??? Disks are walnut. Finish will be Natural Danish Oil. They will look like this .. Click image for larger version.

    Made two jigs to speed up the production process as the 'make 'em' decision was quickly made. One for the slots in the uprights .. Click image for larger version.

ID:	64641. This way the uprights have nowhere to go on assembly.

    Fun little project ... only ??? how many more to go .. daughter is still tallying the final count.

    I find that I have as much fun figureing out the jigs as I do on some of my projects! Question, how are the pieces held together, glue only? Nice job. Russ

    Russ, you are on the money ... glue only. That is the other reason I cut the slots in the disk ... two flat surfaces to mate, as opposed to one flat (upright) and once arc (disk). I am considering contrasting dowels to put through the top upright/disk joints ... and then fake dowel plugs on the bottom. This would be the 'belt and suspenders' approach. Thanks for asking.

    Great jigs. That joint will be plenty strong. Nice wood selection for a very cool design.

    Well done on the candle holders and the jigs. And congrats on the upcoming new son-in-law, too.
