Couple Candle Holders I made this year as replacements for one I borrowed from my sister.

The first is Zebrawood and Wenge. The second is Zebrawood and Purpleheart. Finish is just several coats of Deft Lacquer in a spray can. They do have the washers epoxied into the bottom.

Thanks Ken, that’s what reminded me to post mine. I had to do it today as the first one is leaving my house tomorrow.

Jim, a couple of real nice projects. My wife would love some of these she and Yankee candle are on a first name basis.

For those of us in the cheap seats,” They do have the washers epoxied into the bottom” Why?? LOL
Thanks Pat

I don’t know Pat. I just looked in the Woodsmith magazine and it’s not in there. So I don’t know where I picked up the washer bit.

One stupid question i got is, where do u buy the cups for these? They look great when done but u need the right sized cups for them and i haven’t found any, i only been looking in stores though. I just got a computer back on line so if u have a site please hook me up? This style looks so good but i have a few of my own i want to make.
