Some tealight holders I made for all the various grandparents of my kids. The walnut came out of my buddies firewood pile and was milled on my little bandsaw, the birch for the feet was a gift from a friend with a mill and none of the wood came from more than 50km from my house. Finished with BLO and Arm-R-Seal Satin and Polished with Paste Wax.

I really want a light box and a decent camera though… the pictures don’t do them justice.

Thanks Klaus, I am really loving the local vibe and am planning several projects for myself. I have a friend who is an arbourist and occasionally lets me pick through his firewood pile… so far I have gotten black walnut, cherry, ash and maple pieces from him, nothing massive but enough to make a few nice things from. There is something so lovely in taking a log and making something beautiful from it. Way more satisfying than working with store bought wood.

Yes a light box is something that I am working on also instigated by Brian /BTSimmons and his kind advise.

I have a sawmill close by and the owner and his wife always have some special pieces of locally grown wood for me when I visit .
I have made several boxes using locally grown wood combining it with imported woods and archived great results .
