Well I was kinda bored so I decided to turn some candle holders. They range in size from 3.5” to 6” tall and 2.5” round. All four came out of one limb about two foot long. The one with the bark on it was the end where it forked out. I sealed them with mineral oil and paste wax. After I finished them on the lathe I took them to the drill press to drill hole for the candles. I think they turned out nice for a boring project. Last night the lights went out so I lit two of them, made them just in time.

Nice work! Pecan is good looking stuff.

Here’s one of the few horrible fright tools I recommend:

You can do your drill while it’s on the lathe.

Did you say that wood was Pee Can or Pe Cahn?
