Have some small pieces of cherry burl left over and thought I’d try a stab at making something for a 3 inch Tea Light I purchased a while back. I wanted to lift the bowl for the candle up a little bit so I decided on this simple foot.

did well on project didnt no chery wood so light in color. how do you finish your work. i have allways used mineral oil, but looking for better option for glosier look, like yours, I use madrone, maple, and black walnut burl, claro. forgot to ask when sandig do you use mineral oil to help wet sand
ok take care keep up good work

Thank you everyone, this was a fun little project.

Manzan… Over time this with darken up a bit. I don’t use mineral when sanding.. For finish, I put on this 2 coats of shellac with 0000 steal wool in between. And then one coat of Poly Wipe on. Then 0000 steal wool. Waxed and then buffed out.
