New Guinea Rosewood Tea-Lite holders.
A Nice forgiving stable wood to turn with good grain.
I used a piece of scrap to fit the Nova chuck & hot melt glued the blank to it to save wasting the rosewood.
That also saves on telltale machine marks.
Finished with Feast Watson Mastertouch wipe on poly.
For my niece to match the rosewood doors I also made.

Beautiful tea light holders, Tony!
I like the idea of using scrap for the spigot to save the thickness of the wood.

Sort of DoubleDD, it was left over wood from doing her doors.
