I used the plan found in a Wood magazine from months past. I had maple scraps lying around. The wenge I had to purchase. A store near me had quarter inch thick wenge on the shelf, so that saved me some time.

These were used for a grab bag christmas gift exchange at my work.

Thanks for looking.

very nice. I like the wenge with the maple.
I made three sets of two of the middle size for Christmas presents. I used maple and walnut.
They were rather tedious to make didn’t you think?

Rick, I need some advice… what did you use for the metal ring holding the candle? My father and I made many candle holders learning how to turn wood. But after burning a candle in one.. it started the wood on fire like a big match stick. So now I have about 20 candle sticks that have been just sitting around for about 6 years. They look very cool, but useless as they are. lol

These candle holders are real eye catchers. You did a nice job on them and they are very creative.
