For 2007 I made the famous WoodWhisperer cutting boards for my dad, sister and 2 aunts. This I decided to make WoodSmiths candle holders. The first one is maple and purpleheart, in all 2 of these were made. The second one is zebrawood and maple with 2 of these being made as well. I originally was going to do zebrawood and wenge…....but I messed up the wenge and had to bail.

Nice Job. I made my own version based on that article. I’m trying to post a picture of it, but I can’t figure it out. Anyway, I really like the wenge version. Pretty cool. Well done.

You did a nice job on these. They both look good. I especially like the maple and purpleheart version.

Thanks for the post. This is a nice project.

Nice candle holders. I remember that issue and wanted to make a set myself. Thanks for the “Memory Jog”. I like them both – but am partial to the Zebra wood/Maple.
