Further to my blog on making this candle holder, here is the finished project.

The woods are:-
(probably) some type of Teak sapwood from waste parquet flooring, (see blogs here and here)
and
(probably) one of the common Eucalyptus grown locally. (see blog here)

Finish is as follows:
I sanded down to 120 then coated with a very resilient water-based latex varnish (Rystix Exterior Armadek) and hung it up for 2 days (see below) then sanded with 360, slathered with penetrating wax (Woodoc) and rubbed that in with steel wool.

.
Enjoy your Christmas or Hanukkah, or any other celebration you may have over the next few days.
Peace.

Have watched your blog and enjoyed the proccess. Fantastic design and build. Great choices of wood colors for contrasting appeal.

Your drying rack looks a lot like mine. haha Make it work however you need to.

Keep up the great work and thanks again for the blog also.
