OK, that's what my friend called it. Pic below:

candle holder 4 Sonya.JPG


Basically, as you can see, it's a kind of candle holder thing. My buddy's daughter, knowing that I'm an advanced wood butcher, asked if I could make her one. She's going off to Cal Poly this fall. Can't have candles in her dorm room and would like something along these lines to put electric LED candles in but with standard taper holes so later she could use it with real candles.

Doesn't appear all that complex but would like a drawing or something to get fairly accurate scale, etc. I can't find any reference to anything like this on the web. If anyone has a link or info as to where to get even a sketch of the thing I'd appreciate it.

TIA ....

Perhaps one reason I can't find any info on the candle holder is ...

He spelled it wrong.

It's "Mathilda".

Did find a site with individual photos of the item so - problem (kinda) solved.

Evidently it's a traditional Scandinavian candle holder.
