Shaker Candle Stand: Introduction
In this introductory overview, watch contributing editor Christian Becksvoort build the stand from start to finish.
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!
Watch contributing editor Christian Becksvoort build a Shaker candle stand, start to finish in this 4-minute edit.
