Candlesticks for lent

My priest asked me to make some wooden candlesticks for the altar for lent. This is what I ended up with.



They're 16" tall and 6" diameter at the base. My usual wood store had 4x4 pieces of walnut, and I glued on some 5/4 at the bottom for a wider base. The glued on bits are remeniscent of cathedral arches, which I thought would be a nice touch. Nothin fancy for lent, you know!

Finished with 3 coats of satin lacquer and 1 coat of this wax.

Very well done, simple but stately. The arches on the bottom really sets them apart. Nice job!

Talk about an honor making them for your priest let alone them displaying your work on the altar. Amazing congrats!

Dano, very cool you were asked to do this. Quite an honor I think. Love the arches in the base. Nice job.

Finally got some pics of the missal stand that I made that goes with the candlesticks. I wanted the stand to "match" the candlesticks, so I cut the angle high to leave a small flat part at the top of the turned stem.






Living in Huntsville, AL, you take your life in your hands when you start telling people about making a missal stand for church. I have to specify M I S S A L, NOT missile! :D

Dano, that is awesome. Especially like the shot of the items in their intended surroundings. Really, really nice.
