Tea light holders made from scraps. Laminated 2 or more pieces and then turned then on the lathe. Noticed that the wood was too hard for a normal roughing gouge so I used a heavy scraper and it turned nicely.

I found the easiest way to mount them was to drill a hole through the center of the blank and then mount in between centers. Turn it slowly and with a parting tool ‘mark’ the circle on one face. Then use the bandsaw to cut away the excess.

Wax on the lathe and then oil afterwards.
