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.

A tambour door is only part of what makes this desk special. It also features a simple, classic shape and straightforward construction.
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
