Was out with the wife the other day, and found some candles that smell just like melted chocolate. We both imediatly thought of her daughter. (she LOVES choc.) Well I couldn’t just give her the votive candles for her birthday, HAD to make a candle holder for her. Sacrificed another piece of my walnut for a good cause.
Proccess: Rough cut 2 arches, glued them together to be thick enough. cut flats in the top so could get a good hole with paddle bit ( 1 5/8 ) without tear out along taper. Attached to circle cutter jig I made for the band saw and finished top. Tilted band saw 45deg and used circle jig to get taper on bottom. Lots of sanding and clear poly.
Please let me know what you think. Good or bad.
