  1. Woodturned tealight candle holder

    I turned this Tealight Candle Holder from a piece of Spalted Horse Chestnut.
  2. QD Tealight Holder

    Quick and dirty tea light holder in tiger maple and peruvian walnut, finished with spray lacquer. Simple project. I like it because it illuminates the faces of people around the table without getting in the way. Eight candles to fight back the dark!
  3. ?Ambrosia Maple? Tealight holders

    So, I busted some pallets apart and started planing the boards down. I found one board, that folks on here, called ambrosia maple. I didn't have enough to make anything significant, so I tried my hand a some small items. I think I prefer making larger items, it is easier to hide the...
  4. Cedar tealight holder

    I started with an old beat up cedar blank and was originally intending to leave the outside relatively untouched (like the head to my most recent cedar mallet), but the cracks were going a bit deeper than I thought and had to keep shaving the outside down. I really like how the colors turned...
  5. Christmas Snowflake Tealights

    I am going to my sisters place this Saturday for an early family Christmas dinner. I decided to make a center piece for the table. I got these patterns from Sheila Landry Designs, thanks Sheila. Pic 1 - The completed snowflakes. Pic 2 - Resawing some scrap wood to 1/8". Pic 3 - Starting to cut...
  6. Geometry WHAT???

    First and foremost, this is the first time I used geometry in oh…....... at least a decade??? Nothing too special about this guy, except that this is the piece of wood that cracked my face shield. I figured if I gave up on it then the wood wins! I'm pretty happy to say I put that piece of...
  7. VOTIVE CANDLE HOLDER

    This was just finished yesterday (3/13/14), but was supposed to be a Christmas gift in 2012 (sad, I know). It is Cedar and some dark wood that was given to me. That wood shimmers in the sunlight and smelled like soap when I cut it. Maybe you all could help me out with that. I will call this...
  8. 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...
  9. Walnut and Hard Maple Tealight Candle Holder

    I made this tealight candle holder a few weeks ago out of walnut and hard maple, but it sat unfinished down in the basement. A couple of days ago, my wife was getting ready to send a 10th wedding anniversary card to some friends of ours out in Michigan. I said if she could wait an extra day, I...
  10. Tealight Candle Holders

    The vertically aligned Tealights are made from 2"x1" scrap pieces and are economical to make if you lots of small pieces lying around. The horizontally aligned ones (my preference) are made from wider pieces but I think more appealing. Anyway time will tell when they go to the Hospital charity...
  11. Zebrawood Candle Holder 1

    Tealight Candle Holder Made from Zebrawood and Red Oak. This was a scrollsaw pattern, and was my first candle holder.
  12. Zebrawood Cndle Holder 2

    This is my second Zebrawood project. The legs are Red Oak and were cut on the scrollsaw, but the deck was mitered on the tablesaw. These were just quick easy projects I made for my wife. When the tealights are lit there is a very nice glow from the deck.
  13. 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...
  14. Blackthorn Tealight Holder

    I used a piece of Blackthorn wood & walnut to make a tealight candle holder.I cut the a blackthorn tree down last year and have had it drying ever since.The blackthorn was a really nice to work with and had lovely green purple and pink colours through the wood. I used a 38mm spade bit to drill...
  15. Turned Tealight Holders

    So, I've been practicing with that little ol' Sears Craftsman monotube lathe I picked up last year, and I've (hopefully) been learning some things while burning electrons and making wood chips. Such as: 1) The Craftsman 4-jaw chuck that came with the lathe is not for me. It doesn't center...
  16. Walnut and Pink Lyptus Tealight Candleholder

    This is a tealight candleholder that I finished yesterday as a 40th birthday present for my aunt, made of 4/4-walnut and 4/4-pink lyptus, and finished with Zinsser Bullseye SealCoat dewaxed shellac. It holds 7-tealight candles. The dimensions for the piece are as follows: Overall Length: 16"...

    I made these tealights from some reclaimed parana pine and maple I have in my shop,I made 3 different types,my favorite is the faceted 4 candle holder,I think I will make more of this type!What do you guys think? I finished them with gloss spray on lacquer.I love making tealight holders they are...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've had a basic router for a few years, a Porter Cable Model 1001 (690, fixed base), and have been occasionally thinking through building a router table for it. I thought I'd caught a break recently when a friend was about to send a "Craftsman Professional" table to the dump but thought to ask...
  19. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I haven't used these things before but now I need a fully concealed hinge for a special cabinet. The trouble I'm having is discerning what kind of hinge to buy and how its used. I bought a hinge that was only $.50 and found it inadequate for the project. So I went shopping for a better one...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I got lucky with an ad on CL recently picking up home improvement jobs recently and it put me in a position to spring for a piece of used equiptment. I picked up a used Rigid TP 1300 the seller wanted 200$ and after a week of doing the dickering I was able to grab it up for 100$. The planer has...
