I’ve been on a little bit of a hiatus these last few weeks…a story for another blog post, but work has continued on the Mere Mortals candle holders.
Every time I use it, I like my Freud flat grind, rip blade more and more. I’ve used it for cutting corner slots for splines and keys, flat bottom grooves and these slots in the candle holder parts.
Next up was to cut the notches that will hold the Sapelle platforms for the tea light candles. I want the platforms to sit a little high on the base so I used one of the Sapelle pieces to set the height of the blade to half its thickness.
With the blocks in position its easy work to cut the slots.
With all of the sizing and joinery cuts complete, you can now see how each candle holder will go together.
Here we have all five candle holders dry assembled. Three of them will be joined permanently while the remaining two will be break-down versions.
