  • Candle Holder

    I'm looking for plans for a "Paschal Candle Holder" These holders are normally 38-46" tall and used to hold a 2" Dia. candle about 36" tall, They are used in Roman Catholic, Anglican and, I believe, some Lutheran Churches during the Easter Season. Anyone know of a source?

    it is not plans but looks like this guy took a blaster from a set of stairs and turned a head for the candle and then made a base for it, I would think one could scale out the approximately proportions and make your own plans, fairly easy,

    (you know the width of the candle and the basic height of it, should not be hard to scale out a drawing to your liking),

    below is another style that looks fairly easy to make up,

    not a very good picture but about 2/3 the way down,

      Can you post a picture of what you are looking for? I am unfamiliar with that type of candle. (not Catholic or Lutheran)

        Re: Candle Holder

        Thank you for the links. Strangely enough I had thought about using a stairway blaster. I don't turn but a top made to match the foot wouldn't be too tough. My primary interest in seeing some plans was to get some ideas on weighting the bottom. These things tend to be top-heavy. I suppose a guy could build the bottom as a hollow and fill it with lead shot or pea gravel. Thanks again
