This looks like a fun project to tackle, especially when you just need to complete something fairly quickly. This is a good time of the year to be building these as well since candle holder always make good Christmas gifts.

Its never just another one with you, Houtje. Elegant design and more scrap turned into something beautiful. I might just copy this if thats alright with you.
Oh and Mooi !

Your creativity is just amazing…
Please make more room in your workshop if that means more of your designs.

I like how the candles are offset from each other – I would not have thought of doing that!

I normally tend to like candle holders that have an odd number of candles, but this one is different. It’s very balanced and sort of seems like there’s a mirrored image thing going on here.
These are always a great scrap wood project and you’ve done well here. Now that I’ve got a running BS, I’m going to have to start introducing curves into some of my candleholders and boards like you’ve done here.
The curves seem to be quite consistent, so my question is, did you freehand them, or draw them on nicely ahead of time, then cut the line?
