I made this for a friend for her birthday. Fastest work I think I’ve ever done. I started it this past Thursday morning and now today (only two days later) it’s done. I only did 3 coats of poly on it due to time allowed but I think it turned out pretty well. I actually worked around the clock to get it done in time. You can’t see it in the picture but on the top there is a 3 1/8” diameter by 1/2” hole for the candle to be placed in.
