A tea light with a glass cover made out of a coffee jar. The lid thread is glued to the base so the glass can be screwed out/in to handle the candle.

So, how did you remove the bottom of the jar so smoothly???

That in itself is an art, from what I am told.

Great job overall – I love the design and the sturdy base!

Thanks for commenting Bob,
I use the method described in this youtube link cut bottles and jars.
Next step is to smooth the edges using diamond file.
