  1. Log Cabin Rustic Juniper Candle Holder

    This votive candle holder is made out of 100% juniper. I don't believe I have seen coloring such as this with the dead juniper, I really love the way the wood grain really shows. This is one of my favorite pieces, not so much from the shape, but from the coloring. It measures, 19" L 6"T 13"W...

  5. Candle holder for Mom

    Went through the LJ site and got some inspiration for this. Used some scraps in the shop and knocked this out the day before Christmas for a little something extra for Mom. The log portion was from a neighbor who had some trees fall on his house last winter and I picked some cherry tree limbs...
  6. Candle Holder

    This is my first attempt at a candle holder. Made with black walnut and curly maple. Finished with an oil/varnish blend, topped with shellac and rubbed out with steel wool. I found some pretty good figure in the piece of walnut and thought this would be a great way to highlight it.

  9. Bird's Mouth Votive Candle Holder

    My wife asked for a homemade votive candle holder for the holidays. Searching online, I found that the general design concept is a board with holes in a straight line. Since the desired design is for a holiday centerpiece on a table, I chose an octagon shape. We think it turned out very nice! My...

  11. A Candle Holder in Cherry

    Living in an area that's prone to power cuts, I decided to make a few Candle Holders. The design of this one was inspired by the Ceramic Insulators on the overhead power lines that supply our small row of houses. It is these insulators failing that is often the cause of the power cuts.

  13. Chanukah Menorah

    I made a few of these for my family out of purpleheart and my wife asked me, "Where's ours?" So - this is ours. The wood is chechen. Not the easiest to work with, but I think it's well worth the time. It's a very hard, heavy wood and finishes to a wonderful dark brown. The design isn't...

  15. Yankee Candle holder from Dunnage

    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...
  16. Juniper Log Candle Holder with Wood Burned Scroll Work

    I have been playing around with wood burning and actually have only one tip. So this was a test on patience, it didn't come out as sharp as I would have hoped, but I am sure I can do better when I order new tips for my wood burner. I did enjoy working on this piece, but was also glad when it was...
  17. Candles On A Curve

    These votive candle holders are from a design published in the Wood Magazine November 2002 issue. The original design was five candles, but my wife and I like it better in a three-candle version. The first photo is one I made for my wife. The piers, bases and candle rests are walnut; the...
  18. Wine Barrel Stave Candle Holder

    Forgive me for a lengthy description of what many of you can do with your eyes closed. It's my first real wood working project since I took a shop class in 6th grade. See, I like to wine taste and I frequently see things for sale at wineries that people have crafted out of wine barrels. It...
  19. The Silent Projects

    About a month ago now, my wife and I welcomed home our new house-guest. We locked him into a sweetheart 18-yr lease: food, clothes and roof provided free-of-charge & taxi service included. He's just sticking around for eighteen years, at which point, if we did our job right, he'll move out for...
