Idigbo Open Barley Twist Candlestick

I've endevoured to make an open barley twist candlestick.
Turning the basic cylinder from Idigbo wood a hard West African wood of a pale yellowish brown, was straight forward, but them came the marking out of the spiral and the cutting filing and abrading. This seemed to take forever - but I was very pleased with the result. I hope you are also.
The base was straight forward and including the pronounced outer bead for decoration.
Finally the candle holder and the candle grease dish followed, all fairly routine. The four finshed items were then dowled and glued.
All items were sealed, Danish oiled ith a final coat of paste wax.
The candle cup will take a ¾" diameter candle. I was impressed by my efforts for a first attempt!
Would make a very special gift.
