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.
