He’s built dozens of round Shaker stands over four decades, so there is no one more qualified than Christian Becksvoort to demonstrate making this classic.
In this seven-part video series, you’ll learn how to:
- Turn the wine-bottle post
- Shape the legs, softening the edges with a lathe-mounted sanding drum
- Hand-cut dovetails to attach the legs to the post
- Add a beautiful hand-rubbed finish with oil and varnish
- And lot’s more!
In this episode, Chris spends more time at the lathe-mounted drum sander, adding a profile to the legs before he glues up the base of the Shaker candle stand.
