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.
