More projects from Christmas… made these votive candle boats by gluing up several pieces, drilling out some holes with a forstener bit, and then cutting steep angles on the table saw, then on the bandsaw. I also use this project with the kids at School to go over Face gluing in order to achieve a thicker stock.
3 are made of Maple & Walnut, the 4th is made of Red Oak and stained Special Walnut. All have 3 coats of spray on PolyCrylic. I wanted to use a waterbase finish to cut down on the flammability (is that a word?) of them. Despite the angular design, they are pretty stable, and the candles are held in fairly tight.
Thanks for looking!
