My wife needed a candle holder and kept threatening to buy one if I put it off any longer… I just couldn’t let her do that! So this is what I came up with.
I don’t have a lathe but I did have a huge forstner bit that was the perfect size. I was also able to use up a piece of pecan burl that I’ve had laying around for a while that came from a neighbor’s property. The legs are purple heart. Finished with boiled linseed oil and wax.
It took about two hours start to finish. Now she says its so nice that she is afraid to burn the candle.
