That's cool. Hard to see the details of the holder with candle burning but i got a pretty good idea of how its built. On the bottom have you drilled a hole for the candle to sit in or it just sitting on its own?
The mirror would reflect the light better but I think it would take away from the primitive feel. I love these! When the lights go out, you always know where the candles are, and they are already in a good lighting spot!
