With all the talk recently about tea lights and their holders, I remembered that I made some last month and forgot to post..
I made a few and by the time I had finished showing them around the next day to some friends…I had orders for 40.. with more orders for Christmas…
Ripped strips of various timber, laminated them … sanded and then cut 20 degree cuts on each end and then flipped them and cut 20 degrees about 2 inches [50 mm] in from the end… rotated the cut pieces and glued them back on to the main part…
Drilled 3 holes with a forstner bit and dropped in the soy candles…
Oh and sprayed 2 coats of water borne poly with the Ealex 5000
Finishing touch is felt feet…

Nice work, Larry.
I really like the leg design reverse angle… gives it that modern flair.
