October, 2010—This was made on the band saw. I sandwiched some hardwood left-overs in between two slabs of pine. Then the bottom was sliced off so the hole for the candle could be cut out. Then the bottom is glued back on. If you look carefully at the main photo you can see where I cut in with the band saw to cut out the circle.
I used the roundover bit in the router on the top and bottom. This is sanded down to 220, and stained with a Minwax oil-based stain. After that dried, I applied a spray lacquer gloss.
The scented candle came from Lowe’s and cost $1.98 each. This was a quick, fun project. I should get busy and make a bunch of these for holiday gifts!
