Candle Sticks and a Cross

For those of you familiar with my work you’ll recognize these candle sticks immediately. Yes,, I did a set just like this not 2 months ago!  There are times I feel like I am not so much a woodcarver but more like I have a car repair or body shop. I fix a piece and before you know it the client has scratched, broke, dented destroyed some of my work and I’m back at the same piece making it whole again. That’s the case here.

In the first pics you can see how the bases for these candle sticks have been broken in two and at this point I have already started to prep the wood to make new bases. Now this isn’t so much carving as it is turning but an interesting thing none the less. Hopefully some of you find it interesting.

One piece will be the base and the other the feet.

    Poor Jesus, they keep cutting off His fingers. Didn’t He suffer enough already?
