Where I live here, in the middle of nowhere, in Norfolk, England, we are rather prone to Power Cuts. We had one last Wednesday night, so next day was spent making a nice candlestick so we can see what we are eating for Dinner. I dished the base to prevent wax getting on the Tablecloth. The finish is 3 coats of Cellulose Sanding Sealer & 4 coats of pure Carnuba Wax. Seeing how this looks, the Wife now wants a Candelabra making…!!

Very unique candle holder. Sounds like it will be used a lot. Good thinking.

Thanks Dave! We ain’t had another power fail yet, but it will be useful next time I’m sure.
