Spalted Pear with Columbian Kingswood base Candle Holder. The base is 122mm diameter, 33mm high. Overall it is 263mm tall and weighs 642 grams. The pear was from a tree in my garden that I pruned, then seasoned in a wood pile where it got a beautiful spalted colour, that really needs to be seen to be appreciated. The top is a solid brass fitting. The base has a series of diagonal lines cut into a band (using a special tool from crown tools).
This is one of the first things I made after I got a lathe. The pear is from my garden and the Columbian Kingswood is from Timberline in Tonbridge ( a luthier supplier that sources sustainable timbers from around theb world), it just seemed to match to my eye, so I paid some hard cash for the base and turned them both an joined them together. I was tempted to turn them into an electric lamp holder ( which I may do if it doesn't sell), ATM it is looking for a new owner to love it as much, if not more than I enjoyed making it....as I need the space...
