Turned Oil Lamp

Turned Candle Stand

I wanted to make an oil lamp that looked like a candle. The candlestick is turned out of walnut and finished with Tung oil along with a hard wax coating. The ‘candle’ is birch finished with a flat white stain. I use a glass oil lamp insert from Lee Valley to provide the flame. The handle on the candlestick is a scrap piece of metal that was already painted flat black. I simply hammered it with a ball peen hammer for an antique look, drilled two holes to screw it onto the wood and bent it into shape.
