After my dad had cut some 1/4 barrels, I was left with the center pieces. So I decided to make a candle holder after i remembered hearing about one a guy told me about after he came back from Monterey. Then I had to rip it down to size (and to get rid of the angles on the lengths), sand it down a bit, drill the holes for the candles (that i already had), and roundover the edges with the router/shaper (which was the hardest part because the stave was so darn curved). Then I brushed on 3 coats of Tung Oil. And as you can see, it makes a pretty cool candle holder. Well at least i think it does.
