Candle holders are a fantastic way to supplement or replace holiday or birthday gift giving.. This is a fact I’ve come to realize over the past few months as my wife has scratched her head thinking about what to give her friends and family.
The first pic is of some simple ones I pulled off with walnut (pre-Watco Danish Oil). Those where for different members of my in-law family.
The second set of candle holders is made from curly maple/purple heart (I cheated on the right one, substituting longer strips of pine, as I didn’t have any scrap maple long enough). The PH looks brown in the picture, but its actually a very pleasant, deep purple. I finished with just some rub on poly, but it really deepened the PH and brought out the figure in the CM.
Thanks for looking. They aren’t anything special and only take a few minutes to make, but they’re very well received and carry with it a nice hand-made touch.
