I was ordered to make bunch of candle holders for a lady who make decoupage decorations. I make shapes and sizes just as she ordered. They were made of firwood.
4 different holders in a row- 6×6cm – 15, 12, 9 and 6 cm high
Christmas star – 15×40x3cm
Long box – 25×9x10cm
Squared box – 9×9x10cm
Single holder – 6×6x9cm + stand

Tool used : tablesaw, bandsaw, router table, planner, drill press, orbit and disc sanders…some wood filler, lot of sanding, no finish.

Looking good Ivan !!

I had to make something similar, candle holders from green timber branches.

I used a router and bushing and a template guide, my forstner bit wouldnt cut them at all.

That’s a lot of candle holders! You must have had a shop full of sawdust by the time you finished.
Good work…the Christmas design is real nice.

That all looks like a fun project – simple and good design. I like the christmas stars especially and the boxes are a good idea! I could see boxes of different sizes put together. Nice work!

Ivan, I’m interested is seeing what your customer produces with these. I think that Tom’s comment about lots of sawdust is correct. I recently made a holder for 9 tea lights, and the cleanup did take a while.
Nice to see the variety that you are producing.
