    Two candlesticks

    I made for my dear lady two ''grenenhouten'' candlesticks, was a long time ago I made one.
    She wanted these candlesticks for the livingroom, and she placed them on the mantelpiece, one on each corner.
    For making these candlesticks I had leftover pieces ''Grenen'' (yellow pine).
    These candlesticks are 350mm (14'') tall, and finished with two layers blanc transparent stain, as usual.
    Anyway it was a fun project.
    Thanks for looking.

    Very nice work Ad! I like your design! The candleholders look great on the mantle! Love the grain, the finish and the height! Very nice!

    Good work Ad!

    The grain really sets them off.

    Nicely done, Ad. My turning is not accurate enough to follow plans and make two matching pieces.

    Ad, I've been thinking about turning some candlesticks and yours have really inspired me. I think you got the proportions perfect for those candles.
