A friend’s daughter commissioned me to make these votive candle holders for her wedding. They will be table centerpieces at her reception. Woods are pine and juniper. Finish is one coat dewaxed shellac and two coats gloss water based poly.

The other three will be posted when I get them done. Also making a wedding cake stand and a sculpture that I’ll post when finished.

Thanks for looking.

WOW! What more can I say? I’m really excited to see the cake stand.

I really like these… and your other stuff. Also, the table these are on is beautiful. Did you make it and what kind of wood is it?

Thanks all of you for your comments. rmoore, the table is a family heirloom. My Dad refinished the top way back when I was in high school (and I’m really old). The original price tag is still attached under the tabletop and is dated 1910. I believe the wood is oak, but am not totally sure of that. Anyway, when my folks passed on, neither of my two sisters wanted the table, so I inherited it (lucky me). It has four leaves and extends to about 12 feet which seats 10 to 12 people.

Great idea!

Maybe I finally have an idea for what to do with a strange, twisted piece of diamond willow I have.
