Heart Candle Holder

A simple project made from Mountain Ash. The recesses for the candles are shallow enough for the aluminum holders to be above the wood surface and NOT potentially cause a fire hazard. Version 2 will be done with a slightly larger Forstner bit that will accommodate glass holders. The heart was done with my scrollsaw.
The best part was that it was well received, and is used often.

Great project. That’s another thing I like about playing with wood. It doesn’t take much to turn out something liked and useful at the same time.

I like it!

Looks like a nice way to use some cutoffs and makes some great gifts!

Great idea.
Thanks for sharing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Thanks for all of the kind comments. I must admit that I did get a puzzled look when I simply handed over only one of the two pieces, but the big smile came when I added the second piece.
Have fun in your workshop. ;)
