candle holders and live edge coasters for my sister in law. these are easy presents to make.

the candle holders are DF with Walnut and walnut with Ash.

The pictures do not do them justice – they look much nicer in reality….

the coasters are from silver beech donated by daltxguy. they have undergone a treatment in the microwave to prevent them from checking. not that anybody appreciate this. they just look at this and don’t see anything wrong :-)

Cool candle holders. Are the stripes all the way thru or inlay?

Like the coasters too. Have a set that I dried in the microwave also. That seems to work pretty good.

Keep it up.

Thank you all. the stripes go all the way through. i have made some that have more complex pattern, but these ones are the perfect gift as they are really easy to make. i make the pair together and because the cut is an arc its easier to glue (it does not slide around like horizontal or vertical cut). after a little practice yo can make a pair in 10 min (not including glue drying) so they are the perfect thing to do “in between” projects so you have heaps of gifts to give relatives. i even managed to sell a a pair!
