Here is a maple candle holder I made this past weekend featuring arched cherry legs and highlight stripe. Five shallow recesses were cut with a 2.125” Forstner bit to hold tea candle glasses. Overall size is 18.75”w x 4”d x 4”h. Finished with a couple coats of satin poly. The cherry should darken a little with age.

Enjoy and all comments are welcome.

Nice candle holder, did you get the glass peices from a craft store?

Very nice design. I like the inlay in the center. The arches make McDonalds look like chopped liver!
Nice work!

Thank you for your kind comments!

Vince – I picked up the glass holders from a Michael’s store but I think you can find small candle holders just about anywhere.
