I’m displaying this project mostly to show off the wood. Mesquite is beautiful when finished. It’s hard, fairly stable and durable. Okay, yes, it’s hard on the blades and it has a tendency to burn, but those are minor issues when you see how nice it looks in the end.

These are some of the candle holders I’ve built using Honey Mesquite. This is 3/4 stock. I’ve sold several pairs of these.

These are very nice . A great way to “burn” up your scraps ! I like the leg design too.

Nice design. I like the way the legs wrap around the sides.

Your right, that mesquite realy looks fine when finnished.

Fantastic job.

Keep it up.

I wrap the legs around like that on most of my candle holders. It’s attractive, and it makes the clamping easier.

Here are a pair of red heart candle holders:

And here’s a larger pine candle holder:
