The wife and I go to the thrift stores looking for things I can incorporate into my woodworking.
We picked up the glass cylinder for a couple of bucks.
I used a pre-made bowl blank to make the base.
In use the candle sits on a glass plate.
Base is about 8 inches in diameter.
Base and cylinder are about 14 inches tall.

Wood is dunnage shipped from India, possibly Sapele (African Mahogany).
Sanded to 320 grit.
Finished with 2# shellac buffed off while still wet.
