I thought I wanted a career, turns out I just wanted paychecks.

Nice! My beginner stuff doesn't get stained. :P I'm doing good to sand it. So far, most of it just gets burnished with a handful of sawdust.

Civil,
You're off to a good start. Now you just have to make an identical one to match that one so you have a pair.

Nice start , that looks fine and you say no sanding, that tells me you have sharp tools and turn that oak at a fairly high speed. Exactly right, keep up the good work. Mitch

"matching" doesn't mean that they have to be the same!

A nice set of candlesticks could be different and still compliment each other.
