Shaker style 3 leg candle stand

Shaker style 3 leg candle standBeing between requests for furniture by family members and needing some shop time, I decided to make this Shaker Candle Stand because: I had the materials left over from other projects, and I've wanted to try a project that offers hand tool time, and the sliding dovetails required for the legs.To start I had to glue up the center 3” diameter center pedestal from 8 quarter cherry (photo 2), then turned it on the lathe.After making a pattern for the legs and cutting them out of 4 quarter cherry, I used blue painter tape to mark the leg taper from the 15/16” top down to the required 1/2” foot (photo 4), cut the tapers on the band saw (photo 5), then smoothed all with a hand plane & spoke shave. (photo 6).Next, the dovetail shoulders were sawn by hand and pared down by a shoulder plane and chisels, as suggested by Will Myers in his tutorial video on You Tube:Cutting of the mortises was suggested by Will Myers to be with a hand saw, but I found after trying this once, I preferred to drill out most of the waste and then pare with chisels, as shown here:Results, OK but I do think a second attempt would yield a better result. In one mortise, aggressive paring resulted in a chip out at the bottom, shown here:For anyone that would like to attempt this piece of Shaker furniture, the instructions by Fine Woodworking & maker Christian Becksvoort can be found here free of charge: Shaker candle stand with Christian BecksvoortFor the YT videos, visit Wood And Shop, where the Will Myers videos can be found. Also, going to YouTube and searching for Wood And Shop, there will be 5 videos with instructions by Will Myers:

My shop is in a walkout basement with a steep grassy slope from the driveway. The skateboard-like devices made for moving stock work well on hard surfaces, but not on grass. My solution is an 8-ft. long two-wheeled cart. To …Source
