A couple menorahs of maple salvaged from firewood. I found the design in a google image search, but it was being used as a toy. I adapted it to quality hardwood and for use with real candles. The candle holders are made of 7/16” OD brass tubing, which has an ID big enough to fit a standard 3/8” candle comfortably. Overall an easy project. The maple was exceptionally hard, however, and on the non-spalted one the grain was so interlocked that surfacing it was next to impossible with blades – I had to bring it down to final thickness by hand sanding.
