Candlestands, Footstool, and Pot

Here are three candlestands.  The one at the left was built about 20 years ago.  The other two were built within the past five years.  The little brown pot on the right-most stand was made by Owen McLeod.  He gave it to us as a gift.  The little footstool has a McLeod connection, too.  When Owen finished his PhD, I wanted to give him a gift.  I thought I would make him a footstool upon which he could rest his foot while playing the guitar.  I made the footstool shown in the picture.  It was such a pathetic piece of work that I decided not to give it to Owen.  Instead, I made another (better) one for him, and kept this one for myself.  I guess that was about ten years ago.
