This project really started with the wood. I saw the beautiful figure in the wood of the 4×4 and thought it would make a nice candle holder. So I set out to make it so.

I needed to find out about the size of candles I could use and the size of hurricane glass. I was lucky to find 3inch glass and 2 inch candles. I believed this combo would be good. Since the 4×4 would be cut down beyond 4 inches and I would want a lip or groove for a lip to rest the glass into.

Now that I had the components, it was a matter of shaping the wood. I had a basic image of the shape in my head and an old drawing as reference. As I turned the shape, the cuts and gouges revealed the figure.

In the end, I think this turned out great.
