Well done Keith. A very enlightening project.
What kind of tember (temba) is it made from?

Might have to make one. Have some spalted maple from a tree we took down in our front yard that would work.

Where did you get the candle?

A history remake!
The electric candle = no wax on the holder.
I like the understated elegance of your candle holder.

Very clever and great use of technology. I have a couple of these candles lying around, and now I know what I will do with them…...after winter lets go of my garage/shop.
