Here is a sample of the 40 votive candle holders I made for a friends wedding. I did 12 different designs, making 2 or 3 sets of the designs I liked best. The wood is poplar and any inlay is black walnut. I also made vases (I’ll make another post for those) Each table at the reception had 1 vase and 2 candle holders. One guest from each table was chosen to take the set home with them. They were a big hit.
