I have been finally able to get back into the shop this weekend. I have been working on some votive candle holders for my parents. I am making 1 out of purpleheart and red oak, the other one I am not sure of the species. I think it is walnut. I have noticed that I have found new use for my scraps. (candle holders). I have the purpleheart one just about done. I need to put a few coats of poly on it and sign it. Each one will hold 3 candles. I also have a few projects to build for my wife for Christmas. I should have them all done on time this year, (which will be a first). I will post pics this week of my progress.

I am also getting ready for the Woodworking show in Detroit on the 5th.

Good luck. And, it’s great to back into the shop.

It always feels good to get back in the shop. Those sound like some fun no-stress projects.
