These candle holders were turned from a couple of pieces of firewood. The maple tree was a blowdown that my son and I cut into logs a few years ago, intending to saw into lumber. But, we just never got to it and this winter found that the logs weren’t quite what we wanted, so much of it was cut and split for firewood. After seeing some of the projects made with spalted maple I decided to see what I could do with some on my Craftsman Router Crafter. The first two pictured in the fiirst 2 frames are 4-3/4 inches tall and are drilled for tealight candles or small display candles. The other three pictured together and then individuallly are 4-3/4 inches, 3-1/4 inches and 2-1/4 inches all. They are drilled to accept a regular candle. The finish is spray shellac and a bit of polishing wax. My wife really likes the look of the spalting.
