Here is my first serious effort at trying a multi-axis turning. It is a candle holder (probably pretty obvious because of the candle) that was inspired by an article written by Mark Sfirri. This turning was turned on two axes. The wood is figured maple which caused other turners in my club to ask why I painted it with Rust-Oleum stone texture spray paint. The answer is that the figure in the maple and the multi-axis spindle just plain looked stinking ugly together. I suppose that both were fighting for attention. I'm not sure that it looks a great deal better, but it actually was an improvement. We have a bring-back drawing at our club so this went into the drawing last month. I left the partly used candle in it with the hope that a free used candle might be enough enticement for somebody to take it. The enticement worked -- and nobody had to ask me, "what is it".
