Yin Yang candles (or things that you can make when glue will not cure)

As temperatures here are constantly under 8c lately (were is global warming when you really need it?) i am making stuff that does not require glue.

this is the first version of the Yin Yang candles and in the next one i will make the grain run right to left on both pieces (it was just a mistake, not intentional). I also guess that something whiter than DF will give better contrast.
these are really easy to make and nice as presents.

Very nice. I like it a lot! I’ve fooled around with yin yang before. You might be interested in a project I posted a while back. It started as a jewelry box, but I liked the center so much, it turned into a coaster set.

Wingstress – as degoose already knows, you can make this using david’s (AKA as patron) method to get a seamless glue line. I am going to try this coasters… was on my mind as well

Great job. Nice design and fine workmanship.

Must still be winter where you are. I translates to about 46f

I was 104f here today, that is about 41c ( if I am reading my conversion table correctly)

My problem it everything cureing too fast!

Keep up the good work.
