Just some candle holders made form apple wood.

Playing a little on the little H-F turning lathe.
The taller is 5-1/4 while the shorter is 4-3/4 inches tall. Both are 3 inch diameter.
The holders were turned as 1 piece then cut apart with a miter saw. Torching was done on a support with a hand propane torch. The candle hole was drilled on the drill-press with a 1-1/2 Fostner bit.
Finish is just 2 coats of a Krylon semi-gloss acrylic spray.

Cool. The torch really added to the character of the wood. And I love that apple wood.

Great looking pair of candle holders—will look great during the day, or lit at night!
