I’ve been really enjoying turning these little LED tealight holders. I suppose they will hold normal tea-lights as well but they were thanksgiving host gifts for my in-laws who switched to LED candles for safety. (Someone forgot about the candles a few years ago until hours later :)
These are really simple to turn. Hot glue the wood to a waste block, drill out a 1.5” diameter hole (a 1.5” forstner bit really helps here.) Part and reverse with pin jaws on a 4 jaw chuck.
The first two are cedar and I ended up making 5 of those.
The second one is walnut. The red line is achieved with red nail polish (see my experiment with nail polish).
