This tea light was made from some mesquite slab wood with the bark removed. The worm tracks were filled with turquoise and jet inlay. It was turned on the bottom to set about 3/16” above the surface it is placed on.

It is finished with Danish Oil and clear lacquer!!.

Cheers, Jim

The inlays are a really good compliment to the wood, and the turned footer is cool too. Must have been something with that piece in the chuck
