Wood Turning

Candle Holder

this candle holder is a derivation on the one you did that I liked so much. I used wooden beads that I found at the hobby store. Instead of the copper wire, I used 8-32 all thread with cap nuts on the top.

When I drilled the holes, I set up a “V” with 2 pieces of wood on my drill press. I put the point of the V at the 12 o’clock position and a mark at the 4 o’clock position. I drilled the 12 position then rotated thar hole to the 4 position, drilled again then rotated once more. This procedure ensures that all of the holes in each ring will line up.

It came out great. As a matter of fact, I’ll be doing different size ones and using them for desk pencil holders, vases and anything else I can think of.

Thanks again for the design.

Could I bother you for the ratio of the wax and mineral oil for sanding?

Thanks again and I love your videos.
