A couple of years ago I got a lathe so I could play around with turning. These two candlesticks turned (sic) out OK… not great though. THe biggest problem I had was my pivoting lathe head wasn’t properly aligned up with the tail so I couldn’t center the woods properly. Oh well… live and learn!!! The candle stick holders were made from Oak and Goncalo Alves.

Wow! They turned out really beautiful, like the interesting shapes and patterns on wood and the finish sets it up. Great work!
