Second phase of my friend’s daughter’s request for nine votive candles that were “out of the ordinary”. In these three, she wanted flat pieces that the votive candles would just rest on. She didn’t want me to drill holes for the candles because later on she wants to turn them into wall hangings. The third one was my attempt to fill a rotted center area with a plug and epoxy (first try at using epoxy – turned out a little more cloudy than I hoped for. I think I may have stirred it a little more vigorously than I needed to, and caused some tiny air bubbles that didn’t disperse as it cured). As an accent, I placed a quartz leaf in the epoxy. Turned out okay, not special like I hoped it would. Further experimentation is necessary. Wedding cake stand to follow.

Thanks for looking.

AWESOME!!! That color is amazing. Wish we had more of that wood to play with.

BEAUTIFUL colors in that wood. Is that Juniper? I have some bubble-free epoxy that I use on my table tops if you want to play around with some. I could run it up to Pine sometime, my harley hasn’t been in the hills yet this summer. I’d like to check out your bandsaw setup if you still have it. I saw it on CL and it looked like something I could use.

Thanks, guys. RockyBlue, it is Juniper, locally harvested after forest fire. I think you should fire up your Harley and git on up here. The bandsaw setup is no longer, but it wouldn’t be that hard to replicate, if that’s what you’d like to do. May have something that’ll work just as good, not as refined, that you might be interested in, too. Shoot me an email and I’ll get you directions on how to get here. Thanks.
