Candle holders

Made from shop scraps; just lying around. Pieces that I refused to let become smoke and ashes.

One piece is walnut, the rest are actually unknown to me. The largest one is a super hard wood of some kind and very tight grained too.

The candles all have an aluminum liner under them.

The candles are just tea/warmer candles available anywhere.

I had to screw the split ones to a board to safely drill the holes for the candles. the round ones I just held with a large pliers. All centering etc. was just guesstimated ! Easy, fast, Looks good. I then put cheap felt self-adhesive pads on the bottom to prevent scratching anything.

Ralph…Good to see scraps being used. There are some beautiful pieces of wood there.

The end result is a lovely project.

Way to save those scraps, now you need to save all those future scraps just in case 8^)

Great gifts for all those in-laws (and out-laws) that drop by for the holidays, well done!
