I found this site in search of inspiration for woodworking projects. Needless to say, I quickly became addicted to thumbing through all the projects and workshops every day for the past two weeks. Thanks to all for posting your ideas and workings!
Anyway, this is my first project post. It’s a very simple project that didn’t take much time, just some elbow grease to sand it down and bore the pocket for the candle, then finished it off with 3 or 4 coats of spar urathane.
My wife, kids and I have been visiting a local river bank littered with driftwood, picking up pieces that (in our minds) could be utilized for some crafty projects. I have been into woodworking since I was a kid, but the driftwood has recently sparked a new flame of interest, because of its organic weathered look…. AND it’s not supposed to be perfect!

Resembles a half faced wizard with his beard growing over his lip, but with style. I only use tea candles for burning scented oils though. Looks good duder!
