Day 2: Make a Christmas Candle Holder

Jag kan inte annat än hålla med Ernst när han pratar om sin förkärlek för rundstav. För det är ett sådant tacksamt material som man kan göra massor av saker med. Det är dessutom väldigt lättjobbat så länge man ser till att borra lika stora hål som rundstavens diameter.

Som bidrag till The Creative Collectives julkalender 25 kreativa dagar, har jag gjort en ljusstake i rundstav.

Working with wooden dowel rods is so rewarding. It’s a material that you can do lots of things with and it’s also very easy to work as long as you have a drill that matches the diameter of the dowel rod.

As a contribution to The Creative Collective’s Advent Calendar 25 creative day, I have made a candle holder in the dowel rods.

 

Jag föredrar en ganska avskalad jul och tycker att denna ljusstake passar bra in. Gillar den trären, men man kan såklart måla den i alla möjliga färger om man vill.

————-

I prefer a minimalist Christmas and think that this candlestick fits in well. I like it untreated, but you can of course paint it in the colors of your choise.

Det du behöver till detta projekt är:

1 st 33*33 mm rundstav

2 st 21*21 mm rundstav 

Grövre träbit som fungerar som bottenplatta min var 38 cm lång och 68*45mm i tjocklek

Borr 21 mm/ Såg/ Trälim /Slippapper /Ljuskoppar /Penna /Linjal eller skjutmått

———————–

You need for this project:

1 x 33 * 33mm dowel rod

2 x 21 * 21mm dowel rod

A thicker piece of wood that serves as a base, mine is 38 cm long and 68 * 45mm thick

A drill 21mm / Saw / Wood Glue / Sandpaper / Candle cases / Pen / ruler or calipers

 

1.För att göra själva knopparna till ljuskopparna, börjar man med att mäta upp och markera ut fyra lika stora klossar av den tjockaste rundstaven. Jag tyckte att 55mm var snyggast storlek. Markera ut mitten på varje bit och borra hål som bilden visar med borren. OBS! inte hela vägen utan till mitten av rundstaven.

2.Såga av bitarna så du får fyra lika stora bitar.

——————–

1. In order to make the actual knobs for the candle cases, start by measuring and marking out four equal blocks of the thickest dowel rod. I found the 55mm to be the best size. Mark the center of each piece and drill holes as shown with the drill. NOTE! but not all the way to the center of the round rod.

2. Cut the dowel rod into four equal pieces.

3. Nu ska vi göra själva mittpelaren. Använd den tjockare rundstaven (33mm) och borra två hål rakt igenom rundstaven. Jag placerade det ena hålet på 20 cm och det andra på 35 cm, men titta efter själv vad du tycker är snyggast.

4. Skruva i ljuskopparna med små skruv i knopparna som visas i den andra bilden ovan.

———————–

3. Next is the center pillar. Use the thick dowel rod (33mm) and drill two holes straight through the rod. I placed the first hole at 20 cm and the other at 35 cm, but do what you think looks best.

 4. Attach the candle cases with small screw knobs as shown in the second image above.

5. Fäst mittpelaren genom att skruva en skruv genom bottenplatta och rundstav. Förborra gärna innan.

6. Såga armarna i rätt längd som kommer hålla ljuskopparna. Den ena rundstaven som är 21mm i diameter ska vara 70cm och den andra rundstaven ska vara 45 cm lång.

7. Nu ska du ha alla delar och limmar då fast alla delar med trälim så att de fixeras. Limma ihop alla delar som bilden visar.

Klart!

——————

5. Attach the center pillar with a screw through the bottom plate and dowel rod. For best result drill a hole before.

6. Cut the arms that will hold the candle cases to the right length. Cut the 21mm dowel rod to two pieces, one 70 cm and the other 45 cm long.

7. Now you have all the parts.  Glue them together with wood glue as the picture is showing. 

Done!

  1. Så snyggt Helena! Jag får lust att städa garaget så att jag kommer åt våra verktyg för precis en sådan ljusstake vill jag också ha! :)

    1. Det var så himla kul att snickra igen! Det är så mycket nostalgi från när man stod på träslöjden och det är så mycket enklare än vad man tror. Borra några hål, skruva lite och lite lim. Så tacksamt att jobba med rundstav för det är så enkelt!
      Kram
      Helena

      1. Jag gillar rundstav! Jag byggde vår barnbokshylla med bl a rundstav. Väldigt roligt! Men nu var det länge sedan jag snickrade… tror att det mest beror på att det är så himla rörigt i garaget som sagt. Man blir inte direkt inspirerad när man först ska gräva sig igenom en massa bråte… ;-) Kram & ha en fin dag!

    2. I want to say exactly what Helena is saying… but, I would have to add the then, I would need to ”build” a garage, too! This will not stop me, thought. I’m definitely build this! Love it.

  2. O så fint det blev, Helena! Jag har inget garage, men jag kanske kan få komma på kurs hos dig ;)

  3. Supersnygg! :) Vad heter den där typen av såg? Och är de dyra? Jag är lite sugen på att skaffa en. Håller också på och jobbar med rundstav just nu förresten, fast jag gör en lampskärm! Men den är inte riktigt färdig än!

    1. Den första bilden med alla saker man behöver för att göra detta, där är en fogsvans. Den andra bilden med såg, där är en Gersåg och den får du för någon till några hundralappar. Verkligen värd sin investering. Vad spännande med lampskärm med rundstav. Låter riktigt snyggt!
      Kram
      Helena
