nice candlestick needed to be fairly hefty for the size of candle , I think that has been achieved without anything being out of proportion , looks good to me.

thanks, i have some more purple heart and intend to make 2 smaller versions. Purchased some spray laquer from chesnut so i might give that a whirl instead of the friction polish followed by carnuba wax as this finish soon diminishes

One question, not that i'm overly bothered, its entirely up to you.....but were you naked when you took the picture? :lol:

that awful background is my house :lol:

I do all my best work naked, just ask the wife 8)

I have just purchased some more purpleheart and intend to do 2 smaller versions to stand either side. They will have a smaller version of the base the ball and bead from the original centre section then the purpleheart top.

Thanks for your interesting comments :mrgreen:

Sorry, I wasn't criticising your house (it's tidier than mine!), just trying to point out that a nice piece of turnery would have been better photographed against a plain background. :wink:

But at least you managed to get the napkins set up quickly :lol: :lol:

Like the candlestick, though - I've struggled to get one, very boring, straight sided one done for the challenge!
