In this exclusive video, woodturner and teacher Ernie Conover covers all the steps needed to make these eye-grabbing canclesticks. It’s a good project for people who are new to woodturning. Once you’ve turned a round blank, you do the rest of the work by hand with carving tools. The lathe becomes a vise to hold the work.
In the video, Conover demonstrates the candlestick-making technique with mahogany. It’s a good choice for a first try. Walnut, oak, and basswood would also be suitable woods.
