This is a wedding gift for a friend getting married tomorrow. Yes 11.11.11. Made from genuine mahogany and cocobolo. Cut a 3/4×3/4 grove for the leg “support” (cocobolo) then a 3/8×3/8 grove for the leg (mahogany). The contrast between the material is not as apparent as I hoped, but the end grain got real dark on the legs.

Finish is 3 coats of tung oil and a lot of rubbing. Finished dimensions are ~ 15”L x 6” W x 3”H.

I love it. Simple, zen, and warm.

I haven’t tried to set it on fire yet!

Tung oil is a plant based oil and not flammable, plus it is designed to have glass votives so it is no different than setting them on the counter or coffee table.

Unique design , but for the size , I would have added at least one more candle holder : )
Keep up the good work !

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
