My wife wanted a quick gift idea for a friend of hers, so of course, she starts going through my scrap box lol.

This candle holder was the rebirth of a drunken cutting board attempt. My band saw cuts such sloppy lines I couldn’t get it to clamp up well. Luckily, this piece was just perfect to be revamped into this. Took about 2 hours to clean it up and now I think it looks pretty nice. Walnut turned out beautiful and really has a nice warmth to it in the candle light.

Definitely a sweet save. You’re right, that Walnut has some very rich color. Well done
