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 and brush-on for the finished surfaces)
This one is, as you can see, still actually in work. I have yet to drill the holes (3 or 4 or 5??) and glue it up. I’m not 100% sure what wood the legs are – might be some old cherry? – but it was in my scrap pile and I thought it would go well with this piece. The second and third pictures show the “floating mount” effect I’m working on really well. I’m fairly sure someone else has done this before, but I don’t recall seeing it and I’m insufferably pleased with myself for thinking it up! I have a couple more I’m muddling along with and I’m going to use this mounting technique as much as I can.
Hope you like ‘em and please check out my other tea light posts!
