These are some candle holders I made for Christmas gifts. I am also a hobby beekeeper so I made the votive candles as well which people really liked. The tigerwood ones are made two at a time in a rectangle and then cut in half to seperate the two holders. The joints are mitred and reinforced with a biscuit joint. They are about 12”long. The maple/walnut ones are 10” and 16” long, The finish on all of them is Tung oil and paste wax.
