The first two pictures are a Chanukah menorah made from tulip poplar. This is a style that I’ve been doing for a few years now. I like that the branches can swivel to any position – or stay straight and still look nice. The 3rd and 4th are a different style that I designed at lunch one day. I like the lines and simplicity. The lighter one is the poplar and the darker one is chechen, which is a really hard wood but turns out so pretty. Thanks for taking a look.
