I found a small piece of log in my garden. And thought what can I do with it.
I resaw it on the bandsaw and made this candle holder of it.
I don’t know what kind of wood it is but it looks nice.

Houtje, you are a master at this. You make some stunning things out of what you find and recycle.

What a great combination of more modern lines combined with the rusticity in the natural state of the wood!

Such a great use of a small scrap.
The design is very unique and the wood is awesome : )
