I was asked to turn 25 of these little lamp holders. All were turned from spalted ambrosia maple scraps. Diameter of each is 3 inches and they stand 2 inches tall. Perfect way to use up all those leftover scraps. Finish is Deft spray on matte finish – there are a lot of beetle holes in these and I wanted to make sure they had a uniform finish. After the finish was dry each of them were buffed on the Beall brown wheel only. If you make these make sure you provide a warning that the lamp oil is toxic and to keep out of the hands of children.

Nice lamps!!!! What if you use liquid parrafin? Is that also toxic? We use that in our nativity lamps and it does not blacken the ceiling like the lamp oil did.
