Christmas Candlesticks

Kolya has been making candlestick holders on our $75 lathe to give as Christmas gifts.  We’re down to the wire and I’m hoping the finish dries quickly on the last couple.  It won’t of course, but I can hope.

Lets to his own devices Kolya tends to make a cylinder with grooves, I’ve been pushing him to make more graceful shapes.

From the left, one in Black Acacia, one tall tulip-shaped holder in figured Redwood, two smaller tulip-style holders in Zebra wood (nasty to turn), a very tiki-ish tall holder in Claro Walnut and two shorter holders in some (still wet) exotic turning wood from Woodcraft.

As soon as the finish dries we'll wrap these up
