Candle Holder Spindle Work

Candle Holder Spindle Work
Wanting to try out the new spindle gouge that I turned the handle for a week ago I turned a candle holder. And since I also wanted to try out the new drill chuck I decided to put a base on it:

This is made of cherry and finished with Turner’s Polish. It stands at about 6″ tall and is just over 3″ round at the base.

It was made in two parts with a tenon turned on the candle stick that was glued to the base. Here’s a photo of the two parts:

This was a great exercise in using the spindle gouge, as well as the skew and bowl gouge. It also had the added challenge of creating a tenon that had to fit to size.
