A coworker found a unique rock. Another coworker, who is into rocks also asked me to build a tea light display for the rock. I have never seen a tea light display and no matter where I searched on the internet I couldn’t find much in the way of inspiration. This is what I came up with. The first picture is of the display and the second is with the rock on the display and the candle lit behind it. The picture with the rock is a little fuzzy because the light was dimmed and I do not have a tripod at work. Yeah that and I am not always that good at taking the pics.
The wood is maple, and the finish is a spray on poly. The scale is approximately five inches x three.

An interesting design indeed, the roughness of the end goes very well with the contours of the stone. Great job!

What an interesting idea…might have to make something similar, but with stained glass.

You may not have found inspiration, but I think you’ve created some. Very nice work.

This looks pretty awesome to me …..I never would have thought about illuminating a rock with a T-lite : )
Just the piece of wood alone would have been great : )

That is a nice piece and a great idea.
