I made these candle holders for my family for Christmas this year. One is made from RedOak and purpleheart and the others are made from scraps that I had laying around. These were fun to make. I used a 1 7/8 inch forstner bit for the holes. I also wood burned the lines on the smaller ones.

Rick -

I saw your comments on my page, so I wanted to check out your project. I like these candles. Did you see the ones I did from barrel staves. People absolutly love them, and they are so easy. The only trick is that the barrel staves are curved, so I had to make a jig to hold the stave horizontal when I drilled them so that the candle would sit horizontal on the stave. I have seen others that people have made with barrel staves and they slant, which allows for the wax to run out.

I like your work. Thanks for the comments on my projects.
