Just found perfect piece of oak for that project. Turned out cca 20cm in diameter 18mm thick, cut on bandsaw circle cuting jig. ’’Sun rays’’ were cut on tablesaw crosscut sled, helped with toggle clamps and drawn marks – total 8 cross cuts (each cut is 22,5 degree). Center circle was made with 50mm forstner bit, to accomodate different candle sizes. Finished with spray laquer.

Tribute to my grandad, passed away yesterday on 01DEC, 92 years old.
