  1. Turned oak candle sticks

    Last fall, I snagged an old weathered oak 4×4, about six feet long, out of a flooring plants kindling and scrap pile. It did not have many cracks and was quite solid. I knew it would be good for turning "something". I ended up cutting it into 6" lengths for candle sticks. These are something I...
  2. Honey locust (thorn) and sassafras candle sticks

    The stick on the left was a piece of honey locust (thorn) firewood about ten inches in diameter. Max diameter now is about four and one half inches. Most of what was pared off was pretty well rotted and quite soft. When I started working on this one, I was not too confident that I would find...
  3. A Candlestick in Oak & Cherry with a Mahogany Base

    This project, or at least the Mahogany Base, started out to be a small "Side Table" for my Brother. After speaking with him it turned out that he needs something MUCH bigger than I am geared up to make, so I was left with this Base of about 4 3/4 inches diameter. A few days before, I had been...
  4. Inside out. How far can we go?

    After watching my first inside out video I headed straight to the shop. Several years later my brain is still saying….. what if! And why can't I?

  6. Pillar Candle Column

    Ok, so this was officially my first turning on the lathe. It started as a 3.5×3.5×10 inch hunk from woodcraft. Again, i forget the variety….I really need to start documenting that! This just gave me a chance to experiment with the different lathe tools and get a feel for the machine. I...
  7. Elm Candlesticks

    So this is my first attempt at making candlesticks, Looking back I should have started with a more simple design this was so difficult to get them similar looking I think there pretty close. It took me around 6 hours to do and cost £18 to make its a good fun little project I can feel an...
  8. Candle sticks

    Made these last summer for my brother-in-law for his wedding gift. Made with tigerwood (Brazilian cherry?). Finished with tung oil and paste wax. Simple but nice curves; the way I like most things… Cheers, Rob
  9. Oak Candle Stick

    From a friend's oak tree that didn't survive a storm. It was old and the log was severely cracked. I turned this on my lathe, then fiddled out the cracks to make them more pronounced. It's designed to be carried, just that the little handle goes all the way around (I couldn't see getting rid...

  11. Laburnum Candlestick with quratered Base of Cherry & Mahogany

    This Candlestick stands a little over 6 inches tall, and the Base is 3 inches in diameter. The Laburnum was given to me back in January by a friend who cuts trees. The log had quite a few splits in it so I cut it into spindles, sealed the ends, and left it to continue drying. The base I glued...
  12. Candle Stick

    My older daughter came over for the day and wanted to try her hand at the lathe. So I cut her up some Red Oak and she proceeded to turn down the stick into a dowel. Then I made her a story board with some design ideas and using some brand new Sorby chisles she produced this nice candle stick. I...
  13. Candlestick From Wenge And African Blackwood With Capture Ring

    The candlestick measured 10" tall x 3" wide at the base, and 1 1/⁴ at the top. The two pieces were turned separately and designed to fit snugly together. Once sanded and finished with my friction sauce I glued them together using epoxy. I love capture rings, but didn't want it to take away...

    Woodturning with the Girl Scouts A friend of mine is a Girl Scout leader, and her daughter (and my goddaughter) is a member of the pack (troop? quorum?). We've been kicking around the idea of doing a little woodturning experience - we'll let / help each girl turn a candlestick. There are 12...
