Queen Anne Walnut Candlestand Complete

Finished the candlestand. Oil-based pigmented stain, Timber Mate partial pore fill, orange waxy flattened shellac. Rubbed out with Liberon #0000 steel wool and Mohawk Bristol Cream Polish.

I am happy with the results but, because this project began on a whim, coordinating it with our bed didn't cross my mind. Needless to say this elegant high style piece looks ridiculous next to our homely rope bed. (I'm using it as a bedside table.) Oh well. Guess we'll have to build a pencil post one of these days...
