  2. Oak & Pine Cone Cross

    I saw one of these once a while ago and decided to make one. I had some oak scraps laying around on my wood shelf. I routed out the channel so the top part slides open. Inside there is room for two small candles, and a small bottle of holy water . I believe it is for a "Last Rites Ceremony" ! I...

I've made these DIY Wooden Candle Holders from my scrap wood pile. If you love candles this might be a perfect project for...
  4. Tealight Candle Holder

    This is a simple and inexpensive Tealight Candle Holder that can be completed in about an hour's worth of time. It's made from Red Cumaru, also known as Brazilian Teak. I purchased a 16-pack of tealight candles at the dollar store and used a 1-3/8" Forstner bit for a perfect fit. Click here...

  7. Candle Center Piece

    The inspiration for this centerpiece was from Woodsmith magazine Vol. 29/No.173. Unlike the split version in the magazine I decided to try an inlay design. The woods are maple and walnut. I used linseed oil for the finish. I didn't want to use shellac or anything that would be affected by...

    A Visit to the Sawyer Tim Marko pointed me toward a local sawyer so I could get more hardwood for less money, and boy, did he send me to the right guy! Fritz Hannaman lives about 10 miles from my house, out on a little country road outside of Mansfield, Texas. I picked up all the wood you...
  12. Hand Tools
    Can anyone tell me anything about this saw. It is a Disston Canada K-14. I looked around the Disston Institute website and didn't see anything about it. The only picture I have of it is this tiny one I found online: I picked it up for a dollar today.
