This is a miniature three legged stool for a candle or small plant. This one is made from Maple and Walnut and all done on the lathe and the drill press. It stands 4" tall and is 5" in diameter.
You could use this for a number of things, I like the candle idea but I also thought about making one as a plant stand. You can get very very creative with these. And they are not very difficult to make.
Step 1: Grab some scraps
For this one, I used 3 small pieces of walnut about 6" long X 1" X 1" and 6"X6"X1" Maple. The maple was clean and flat on one side and the other side is rough cut. The walnut were simple scrap cuts I had in the bin.
Grab a pencil spring punch or scratch awl and mallet and your angle square for the next step.
