Tonight is the time to light the first candle of Hanukkah. Here are three “Hanukkah candle holders” , aka known as “Hanukkyah”. I used olive wood, out from round trunk, that lays around the shop for year, or more. Waiting to his goal. I used inlay butterfly, to hold sum spreading of big cracks in the wood, that came through from one side to the other. The coating is clear varnish, water based. I mixed it with 25%-to 50% water, to get a nice finish. Have fun, and Happy Hanukkah.

Love the olive wood and efficient use of that piece to yield three Menorahs. Happy Hanukkah!

Beautiful use of a piece of wood. I especially appreciate the photo showing how you decided to divide the original piece.

Happy Hanukkah!
