Some more tea lights made from birds eye maple and oak – scraps from project, I’m currently working on. Finish – wood oil.
My motto is – never throw away any piece of wood – always reuse any scrap possible.

Nice teal light holders, Ivan. Scraps is why I can walk in my wood room any more. I can’t throw away any good wood if it might be used in a future project.

Cheers, Jim
