Trying to kill off the bowl blanks from Christmas…Deb was throwing away some old Yankee candles…
They're all the same diameter jar so as I was taking them to the shop (for the wax of course) I thought….why not.

More dunnage (Indian dontknow) sanded to 320 with a single coat of 2# shellac buffed off while it was still wet.

I may shine it up on the Beall, or not.

Enjoy

These are really beautiful. I've noticed you posted quite a few.

I've been thinking of making. Is there some precaution I should take for fire risk when using a wooden holder? Is that being over-cautious?

This makes that candle look so much better. Very nice way to use up some o the small stuff.

Dave,
We have had the yankee candles burn pretty far down just sitting on a cabinet or shelf…never had any scorching…the glass gets warm, but not even so hot I can't hold it in the palm of my hand.
The really big holders we put a small glass saucer (dollar store) beneath the candle.
The hurricane holder is an initial design, but i'm going to let the candle burn all the way down and see what happens….will post an update after.
