So, the sled that I built for my bandsaw made it easy to mill some lumber out of logs, including a big chunk of olive. The main pieces were quite wet, but some of the offcuts were from limbs that were dead on the main log long before the tree was felled. One of those offcuts was large enough to yield the wood for this project.
It’s a tealight holder, about 3” tall and 1-3/4” at the largest diameter, with a nice figure and some interesting cracking that, I think, lend a bit of charm to the finished piece. The base is recessed 1/8”, leaving 3/8” rim for the holder to rest upon, and it’s finished with spray-can lacquer.
If you find the shape reminiscent of a chess pawn, then you’ll know exactly what inspired the shape.
Thanks for looking!
