I finally got back into the shop and spent some time with the Craftsman Router Crafter making some more candleholders. In the first photo, from left to right, a set made from carob wood, a set made from olive wood, a single piece made from black walnut and lastly, another one made from Eastern Red Cedar. In the second picture, from left to right, is a 16 inch tall hollow spiral candleholder made from a piece of oak firewood, a 13 inch one made from Eastern Red Cedar and oak, a small piece made from dogwood and on the right, a set made from the mimosa silk tree that grows like weeds here in Kentucky. Thanks for looking! (9/18/12)

Very nice Gary. I have read about others that own and use the Craftsman Router Crafter. Don’t think I have seen that tool before

Very nice. When I first saw them (and before I read the description) I thought, “Sweet, somebody made wooden motorcycle grips!”

I picked up one of those from an estate sale last summer. Mine is missing the crank, but rest seems there. You post may push me to try and use it. I particularly like the open center look you can get with it.

Great job. Sears would be glad that someone is using one of their antique machines. I have a friend who had one and he bought a Legacy mill. They didn’t like their machine being called an enhanced Sears Router Crafter. They would just look at you and not say anything.
