A little votive holder made from some test pieces of the 1882 box and walnut strips from the scrap bin .
Just a little project using up stuff that would otherwise wind up in the fire wood box and that would be shame .
Will make a nice gift for the unexpected visit .

Beautiful piece Klaus. Those pieces weren’t scraps . . . they were uncompleted art. Glad you didn’t heat the house with them. ;)

Excellent job on this and whoever gets this will love it. The holder itself is nice but the framework is just as nicely done too.

Everything but simple project! I like the shape, colours and those small pyrmids on top surface.

How small does a left over have to be in your shop to be thrown out? :-)
You do have a way with scraps.
This is just sweet, the light and shadow play with the pyramids is very attractive.

That checkerboard look really makes it pop. The design is very cool also.

When I saw the first picture, I thought you were making a fire dragon. Nice project, scraps or not.

Looks like everyone has said everything that I was thinking. Nice, Unique, Wonderful, Cool, Excellent and I too had that Dragon thought! I’m also glad you didn’t use the wood for heating your house. Nice work as usual Klaus.

It does indeed look nice, may I ask how you made the pyramid shapes?

I trolled through your 1882 project post and found a reply to candy mentioning a cutter bit so I assume its a router produced effect otherwise I learned nothing.
