  8. Candle Holders

    I made these 3 candle holders from scrap purpleheart and maple…2 of my favorite woods. The long ones are 18 inches and the short one is 12 inches. I added the purpleheart inlay detail because I thought it was too plain. The 2 woods are both cut at 45 degree angles and I think that makes them...

    I found the glass holders and they were crying to be displayed. The legs are poplar ebonyized while the centera are oak recovered from a pallet, all covered in gloss poly. I found 9 of the large size 'globes' but only 2 small ones. I expect to use only the battery operated tea lights but the...
  10. Christmas 2020 candle holders

    Made a few votive candle holders for friends. They are made out of 8/4 white oak and cherry harvested only a few miles from home. They were fun to make and a great way to use some off cuts, live edge, and knots that might have otherwise ended up being wasted. I left them all pretty much rough...

  14. Votive Candle Boats

    More projects from Christmas… made these votive candle boats by gluing up several pieces, drilling out some holes with a forstener bit, and then cutting steep angles on the table saw, then on the bandsaw.

  15. Walnut Candle Holders

    Walnut Candle Holders So, I had this little piece of walnut, about 5×12 x 3/4 inch, and it had this little corner where there was a sort of natural edge with sap wood and bark. My first thought was to cut it off, true up the piece and resaw it for a small box or something. After I decided to...
  16. Ekki Tealight candle holders

    This is my 1st true (played with it a few times last year) turn with Ekki and I think they turned out nice. Ekki has to be the hardest wood I have ever turned… The finish is just 2 coats of poly with steel-wool between the coats….. One of woodworking friends here at Lumber Jocks has a blog...

    Helping my dad stack some firewood one day I just could not let him burn this log. Candle holders evolved. I see I have some work to do on making two items identical but for my first try at two at a time I am quite pleased. Perhaps only one should have been made from this log as it was quite...
