An interesting companion piece for the cobbler's bench is the candle stand that was used by very early colonial cobblers. It also could be used for sewing, knitting, bible reading or wherever a two-candle-power light was needed.

Workbench Magazine September-October 1965


This is a wonderful project, from one of my favorite time periods, Colonial America. Just imagine making this project from maple, or better yet, curly maple and giving it a dark deep antique stain. As is with all these Workbench Magazine plans, they are more of a schematic than they are plans, giving you dimensions and scaled grids for your own templates.
