It is time for advent candlesticks here in Sweden and I wanted to make a natural wood candlestick on my own. I took a board of lightly spalted birch and drew a design based on two circular arcs with slightly different radii. Then it was just a lot of drilling and routing to make place for the lights and electrical wiring. I bought the cheapest traditional advent candlestick with LED lamps I could find and gutted it for the desirable electrical parts which were transplanted to the birch candlestick. The wood is treated with white pigmented hard wax oil.
