    Candles On A Curve - 2012

    A few months ago, one of our neighbors was helping with something in our home and admired one of these candle thingies I had made. So, naturally, LOML picked up on that and asked nicely if I could make one for the neighbors on either side of us. Both families are fantastic neighbors and have done a lot for us, wanting nothing in return. We give them a little something each year and this time will be something from my shop.

    These are based on a project published in Wood Magazine several years ago that held five candles. I built a couple of the five candle versions for family, then reduced it to three candles at the request of LOML so it would take less space. The two I just finished are made of cherry. I've done others with contrasting woods, but we think these look good with the single type of wood. Finish is rattle-can Deft.

    I really like those and think you are correct, to me the single species of wood looks very "rich". Coarse I haven't seen the others.

    Here's one in contrasting woods in an earlier thread.
