Candlesticks go public

Dennis showed three new candlesticks at the February meeting of Pikes Peak Woodturners.  All three are turned as a single point twist from American Cherry.   The pair are made in the traditional way — one right hand twist, and one left hand twist, for a symmetrical presentation.    The single candlestick holds a taper, and looks best with a 5″ coach-style taper candle.    The pair are designed for an updated look, with pins to center 2″ or 3″ pillar candles.

Dennis will demonstrate cutting twistwork by hand at the Utah Woodturning Symposium in May.   For the first time, he will demonstrate some novice and intermediate level twist techniques for smaller projects, like finials and bottle stoppers.

He will also have demonstrations of stone inlay work, the laminated twisted goblet, and the traditional woodturner’s canteen.
