these are candel holders made for family gifts. The second pis is cherry with walnut trim. The third pid is my first veneer job, im quite pleased with the results, I left the trim off this one to show Karson what i did with some of the veneer he gave me. Im hopeing he will tell us what wood this veneer came from.

It’s Madrone Burl veneer from the Pacific Northwest. I like to use it along with cherry because it looks like some cherry burl. It doesn’t age like cherry does but it has a great design.

I made a wooden book cover for my daughter-in-law who was going to medical school, because the grain looks a lot like blood vessels going through your body.

Great looking gifts. before I looked at your right-up I said to myself Nice looking pet feeding dishes.

But, you picked a more creative and useful use. Too good for the pets.

Thank you Karson, I guess your right, in the pics they do look like pet dish holders except that they would be for small pets. They are 12” long 2.5” tall and 3.5” wide. the holes are sized to what ever the candel cup size is. Since would look nice as pet dish holders I think ill make them a bit larger (for full size pets).

Hi Bryan;

Nice job. I guess as pet dishes, it would be food, water, and condiments. LOL

Good idea Lee! My dog loves ketchup on everything!

Bryano, these are nice. You’ve incorporated some nice contrasting woods into a good project. What kind of finish did you use?
