This is a gift for my step daughter. It is made of Chestnut with walnut cups.
The center bottom swivels to expose the additional 2 lights. The top has a 92” radius crown.

It is 2 1/8” wide, 2 1/8” high and 12” long and finished with satin lacquer

Always beautiful and original ideas from you. In fact there are two designs in one. You can change them when one gets bored.

Jim, very nice. The swivel is a good idea and is a compact way to squeeze in 2 more Tea Lights. There is something very peaceful about Tea Lights. They have them in Catholic Church’s in Australia.

Nice combination of woods too.

Regards,

Cliff.

Thank you all for the nice comments. We have a similar holder and she commented several times how she would like one for tea lights. The party is Sat night so I had to move on it. I’ll never run out of tea lights…........ I bought a cube of them at IKEA ( 100 lights).

I did get in a little lathe work with the cups. I don’t feel right if something is not spun every day!!

cheers, Jim

Very innovative, Jim. A nice benefit is that tea lights don’t obstruct the view of people across the diner table.

Cheers!
