Here are a couple of candle holders that were made from some old oak boards that were almost used for firewood. Not too fancy, but functional.

What stains did you use on the Oak ? I thought that they were made from Mahogany and Walnut at first glance : )

I used a light coat of cherry stain on all of them. The stock came from two different oak boards giving them their unique appearance. The boards were from a shipping crate many years old so it’s possible that they are different species of oak.

I always like to hear a good “saved the wood” story.

Much better than my design – I loved how quick these projects come together. A year’s worth of scraps and one afternoon = christmas presents for family and work.

I’ve found some of the nicest pieces of wood in pallets over the years : ) It’s truly amazing that they say it’s not good enough for certain requirements , so they make pallets out of it : ) Don’t tell anybody though LOL
