I stained the bits and didn't expect much trouble. But of course when you are making a piece of furniture on three legs you have to be very careful and precise. The instruction sheet explained exactly how this should be done, using a 120-degree guide. Imagine, until yesterday, I had no idea what a 120-degree guide was. And it would have been indispensable when I made some Victorian furniture. Such a simple little tool, cut from a piece of card. The clamp is far too big for this delicate miniature, but it worked.
I will made a period candlestick and candle, but so far I have borrowed one from my modern house. It shows how this piece of furniture was used. Now I need a room to put it in.
