Each year I make something for my 8 colleagues in our medical practice. I was at a bit of a loss as to what to make this year until I saw Stevinmarin’s wonderful video on these little tea light holders. As I was making them in my shop, I started lining them up quite by accident. When I looked at them as a group, the last picture was what I saw! So my thumbnail is the group after finishing and putting candles in each. The stands are made from either mahogany, purpleheart or cherry. The tops are contrasting woods. They are about 10 inches long and 2 1/2 inches high. I finished them in 3 coats of poly. They were quite easy to make at a time when everyone is busy.
I would encourage anyone looking for a quick and simple gift to check out Steve’s video. He is both instructive and entertaining. A great big thank you from me to Steve for giving me the idea. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
Thanks for looking.
