Just something I whipped up tonight after diggin through my scrap bin. 3 sets of 3 walnut tea candle holders. Drilled a half inch hole all the way through them so you can use a pencil to remove the old candle when it needs to be changed. Sprayed with a few coats of lacquer, then hand rubbed with wax.

Where were you last week when I wanted “Quick yet elegant” designs for my presents? The small hole is a great idea. I have had complaints that the emties are hard to remove. Thanks for the ideas.

Keep up the fantastic work.

Great idea. Very very nice.
I have some nice teak cutoffs that would be perfect for this.

This is a pretty good idea. Not only do you whittle down the offcuts that seem to mulitply on their own but you make a thoughtful gift for others while getting in some shop time. Sounds like a winning combination to me.

By the way the candle holders are gorgoeus.

Ingenious idea to drill a hole all the way thru the holder to help in candle removal.

I was looking for good Christmas gift ideas, and this fits the bill. Next year there may be a few of these under the tree. Thanks for sharing!
