This tea light holder started as an experiment with the “string theory” design using a jigsaw (before I had my bandsaw). I wanted to see if I could do it, and it worked! After the second glue-up, I saw what could be a flame in the pattern, so I resawed the piece, then used Rit dyes in black, then red on the inner maple using the jatoba string as my border. LOML immediately claimed it for herself, luckily she lets me look at it.
