OMG! Your arm was so close to those flames… YOU COULD HAVE BEEN BURNED ALIVE!!!!!

BTW- Why do you always post YOUR video just minutes before I post MINE? Are you planning that? (Just kidding…)

WOW, now that’s a nice change up for a tea lite holder.

Stumpy: Safety comments come with the territory. Not sure about the posting time coincidence. It depends on a lot of things. The size of the video is a big one…a 2GB video can take me up to 2 hours to upload to YouTube. Sometimes I am busy and can’t get to it until late in the day, but I always post sometime on Friday. This is my 41st this year, though. There are a lot that I have forgotten about!

Stumpy, you should watch Steve’s Special Safety Videos…
... I’m positive that you will learn something…
... something that would help you in your future videos!

Be sure to look them up and watch… OK?

Thank you very much…

I guess my humor didn’t land… what else is new…

It was a bit of fun over the ruckus last week about my gloves, that’s all. So that nobody thinks I am actually picking on Steve’s safety, I’ve edited most of the comment out.

Steve- It would obviously be impossible for you to time your videos for release BEFORE mine are. So, that was a joke too.

Sometimes I need to tap the mic and say “is this thing on…” I’m like the guy at the club that makes you walk out, I suppose!

Joe- I watch ALL of Steve’s videos. Thanks.

Nice simple project and your videos are awesome. I made a few candle holders too.

Stumpy… I knew what you were doing… and it was FUNNY…
... I guess you have already watched all of the very useful Safety Videos Steve has made?
... if you’re watching what I am referring to… I think you find that I’m just extending your humor… LOL

Hi Steve,
that’s the project I’ve been looking for. We’re having a Christmas sale at my school. The kids will love making it. Thanks again!

Alex: it’s a great project for hand tools, too. All you need is a saw, really.

Steve: I’m definitely going for the hand tools. I let the kids (15-16 yrs.) use my scroll saw today for some Christmas tree candle holders and they didn’t feel very comfortable. The whole thing ended up in me using the band saw and then resawing the precut trees to get two from each piece. They did the sanding and staining afterwards. As the idea is to teach them some basic woodworking skills I’ll have them use the (hand) mitre saws next time to prepare the stock for the tea light holder. We might batch them out using double stick tape for the same parts, preparing the notches with a sequence of saw cuts and then pare out the rest with a chisel. I’m still not sure about the chiseling part though. It’s hard to explain to parents these days that their child lost a finger. I might as well batch cut the notches on the radial arm. Better safe than sorry …

Can you think of a fool proof way to get the notches without chisels or power tools?
