I picked this table up from the curb a few years back waiting for the perfect project. I used the top to make a chalkboard that I use that at my shop. Part of the leg was used as a repurposed table leg candlestick holder. I love how it turned out. Now, to find where I put the other pieces so I can make more candlesticks.
Whenever I find old pieces of furniture on the side of the road, I will usually pick them up if they have great details. I know I won’t fix the piece, but use it for other things.
I started by cutting the pieces apart from the center table support. I sanded it down with an electric Ryobi sander to get it smooth and level. Mr. DD cut 2 different sizes of wood squares and ran them through the Ryobi router table to get the pretty finished edges.
I used the center candlestick to draw the boundary line on the bottom of the upper wood square, so I would know where to counter sink the drill holes.
I placed Gorilla wood glue on all the pieces before attaching together with screws.
That is how simple it is to make a great looking candlestick holder out of a used table leg.
