That something to make, the most different ideas are always necessary. For example, candlesticks in any variants use popularity now. As a material for them the scraps of wood which are remaining from your joiner's works and quite often thrown out can serve. We will offer you five variants of candlesticks.
For a simple quadrangular standing candlestick (drawing at the left in the middle) we take a piece of a board in the size 12х 12 sm in the thickness of 1,5 sm x 2 see As the basis we will attach from below a board piece (by means of glue or screws), and this piece should be more thin a minimum on 0,5 sm previous and on 1,5 sm - 2см from different directions less it in the sizes. The third part which is attached from above, and is, actually, a candlestick. For it we use a plate in the thickness approximately 1 sm and in the size 6x6 we see In the middle we will hammer from below through a nail which will hold a candle. It is possible to decorate candlestick edges, burning out on them patterns. Other candlestick which can be hung up on a wall (see drawing at the upper right), consists of a board of the candlestick attached to it at right angle actually with a support. The board has the conic form upward and forward. The sizes can choose under your discretion, however the distance of a candle from a wall board should be big enough that if it is required to extinguish a candle flame, it was not threw on a board tree. In the top part of a wall board the aperture for candlestick suspension is bored through. .
The Standing candlestick for three candles (drawing at the left above see) consists of the core bruska in the width 4 sm, in height 3 sm and 35 see length it with uniform intervals square plates in the size 6 h 6 sm and of 1,5 sm which hold candles are attached thickness. From below are pasted bruski, forming the basis and 2 sm having a thickness, width of 3 sm and length 6 see From above bruski are brief.
For the next variant (drawing below on the right see) we use a wooden tile of any size (depends on quantity of candles placed on it). The thickness of a tile should be not less 2см. From outside surfaces, approximately on two third of thickness of a tile, are bored through apertures in which then candles are stuck. Diameter of these apertures depends on the provided sizes of candles. If is provided to put some candles, эѕцэю" to choose for this purpose thin candles. Then diameter of bored through apertures should be no more than 1-1,5 see it is necessary to pay attention also to that intervals between candles were big enough, differently of a candle, owing to allocated heat, will soften each other. .
Ordinary churbachok (drawing below at the left see) as a candlestick it can look very decorative. For this purpose undertakes the piece of wood in the size approximately 8 h 8 sm and thickness of 3 sm in which the round aperture with a diameter 4-5 sm approximately on half of thickness of a material is made. Four corners strongly round off, and edges slightly process an emery paper. From below the nail of the corresponding length which holds a candle is hammered. Thus to hammer in a nail it is necessary cautiously (it is desirable to drill preliminary an aperture) that wood has not broken up. .
Certainly, except candlesticks there are also other useful trifles which can be made of the material rests, for example, supports from several bruskov. For a support under a coffee pot it is possible to make squares in the size 10-15 Bruski see there should be in the width approximately 2 sm and in the thickness 0,5-1 see .
The Most simple support becomes as follows: properly ground by an emery paper, slightly rounded on edges, rejki develop nearby with each other on an oilcloth, soft plastic or a skin (the area occupied rejkami, and the substrate area should be co-ordinated). Other support can be made by a lattice principle, and the interval between rejkami should be 0,8-1 see .
