Here are some of the tea light candle holders I’ve been puttering with these past few days. They’ve all been made from my stash of rescued firewood and pieces from my scrap piles. Holes are 1 5/8”, drilled with a Forstner bit. Finish is Minwax semi-gloss poly (spray-on for the bark, brush-on for the finished surfaces)
These two are the first two tea light candle holders I made in this series of posts. They’re rescued firewood, as they all are. The convex and concave fronts sort of match, so the might be halves of the same log, split along the natural curve. I made the slots for the legs using my trusty old hand-powered Craftsman sliding-rail miter saw to cut the sides and chiseled out the centers. The ‘short’ legs are set to the height of the slots, where the ‘tall’ ones are kind of a half-lap in the front. (had to cover a small chip-out…) Man, I love the look of walnut!
Hope you like ‘em and be sure to check out my other new tea light posts!
