Was looking to make a simple project I could complete in a weekend and use up some leftovers. We had half dozen of the little candles sitting on the coffee table which would slide around when you bumped the table – most annoying. So I put together the candle holder from scraps of purpleheart from the sideboard project and a peice of osage. It was fun to do a project in a weekend:)

I’m not familiar with osage. is it rare? I like the look of this piece. The contrast in color came out nice. Well done.

I like the design. The purpleheart feet and sub-base adds to the beauty of this piece.
Really stunning!

nice work on this… I too like the wrap over feet…. adds to the overall look… and the spacing of the candles is great…
