Here’s a Maple tea light candle holder just in time for the season. It’s 21” long, about 1 3/4 wide and 1 1/4” thick. It’s one solid piece of wood. The top radius is about 24” and lower around 23”. Used a 2” forstner bit and drilled 3/4 inch deep holes. They are spaced in from the edges 2 1/2”, 6 1/2” and 10 1/2”. The ends are sanded to 1” thickness to make the legs. Still needs to be stained and finished.

For such a simple project I sure used lots of tools making it: drum sander, spindle sander, disk sander, router, mitre saw, table saw, bandsaw, drill press, planner and jointer. I think that’s all of them.

Like it a bunch. Did you cut the radius or bend it?

Hi Geoff, that is a real cool looking holder. Sweet design and so simple. Did you bore the holes first and then cut the bottom radius?

Hey guys, I cut this from a solid piece of maple, no steam bending. And I did bore the holes prior to cutting the bottom radius. It’s a fast project under 2 hours. Thanks for the props.
