Build the epitome of Shaker candlestands. The simplicity and grace of Shaker style has assured itself a place in history as a beloved example of authentic Americana. With this digital plan, you can build a refined version of this iconic round stand that is as beautiful as it is practical.

A straightforward project guaranteed to please. This Shaker stand features a slightly concave tapering post, thin top, and half-crescent legs. With a lathe and attention to detail, this classic is not hard to build. The post is turned and the curved legs dovetailed into it. The top is a simple round with a curved edge profile.

Only one original in this form is known to exist. This stand has been refined over several versions until it is as near to the original as possible. It is a favorite of renowned craftsman Christian Becksvoort who has built over 100 similar stands. In his opinion, this one is “the ultimate.”
