« Part 28: First attempt at Mortar & Pestle Part 29 of Journey into Woodturning series Part 30: Three Piece Jewelry Box! »

I have seen these wide or thick candles and the pedestal holders for them. I thought I would give it a try and got a piece of red elm, 4×4x6. I drew out a concept of what I thought the piece would (or should) look like. As I got it round and secured in the chuck, I felt like I was challenged with length and couldn’t get the dimensions I was originally looking for.

In the end though, I believe the design appears sturdy and compliments the candle well. The glass hurricane tube fits perfectly. I’m a little concerned the wood is still not fully dry and may flex, putting stress on the glass. The wood trim around the glass is very narrow and not very deep, so there is a good chance it’ll be fine. What do you think?

Here is this week’s video: Red Elm Fat Candle Holder!
