Paschal Candle Symbol -- New and Improved


Ed Thomas

Here the previous symbol set is retained with forged nails as pins in a maple candle extension I turned on the wood lathe. The candle then mounts on the extension. To complicate things, the original candle stand must have been made for a different diameter candle, because for years, the pastor has had to whittle the candles to fit in the socket. So I turned an adapter plug on the lathe and reforged lag bolts to hold the bottom. Like Lego's I guess. It would have been more satisfying to make an entire Paschal Candle holder from scratch, but there is a plaque on the bottom of this one dedicating it to some long dead congregation member. I would likely be hung in effigy (or for real) if I suggested retiring this church heirloom. Hence the modifications, rather than replacement.
