This English walnut tea candle holder was made as a gift. It was a simple but elegant piece, the material spoke for itself. I originally intended a very different build, but after the material showed it’s beauty. I backed off and let it showcase.

Pretty corny philosophical write up….......I’ve had a lot of wood show me the wrong way as I completely destroyed its inner beauty and it ended up in the burn pile.

Ha! I’ve never been accused of being corny, nor philosophical now that I think about it. But with the beautiful grain pattern and the rich color of the wood. I couldn’t justify cutting it up. If that’s corny, I’m guilty as charged. Thanks for looking y’all.
