These were from a Woodsmith magazine a few years ago. Ended up being pretty simple. The trick is good bandsaw work. Keeping the curved top an even .375 means you can sand through the drum sander. I made 8 for relatives and a couple extra to sell. I think people can really do a lot with different candles, colored marbles, rocks, sand, etc.

Very nice. I remember this project from the show. Good bandsaw work means good bandsaw maintenance! What is the wood?

Very cool – and very versatile design not just colors of marbles but size and number of candles or flower vases. Thanks for sharing.

Very neat. Is there a flat spot on the bottom to stop it from rocking?

Yes. The item is from volume 216 from Dec 2014. Started with 8/4 oak, resawed to 1.5 inches. Once you cut the curved top you remove the edges of the bottom piece. So the area you see with the candles is the bottom section with walls about 1/4 inch thick.
