Six-Candle Centerpiece

You can build this candle stand in just a few hours using pieces from the scrap bin and a few simple table saw techniques.

Making a candle stand is a great way to use small, prized pieces of figured or exotic wood. The one shown in this plan is a good example. It gave me the opportunity to combine a nice piece of maple I’d been saving with some shorter cutoffs of cocobolo. And a small project like this also offers a great chance to showcase your joinery and finishing skills.
