these are some candle boxes that i made about a month ago, i got the idea from lazy Larry, and i modified these a little , per his encouragement , there made from walnut and oak, they have padauk inlays that go around the whole box and then i also did a inlay of antique yellow southern heart pine in the front and the back, i drilled a inset on top for a candle to sit in, as you can see, there finished with several coats of lacquer, i enjoyed making these and think they can have many uses, besides candles, the inside can be used for nick knacks or maybe a special place to put your keys when your not using them, a fun project to do and has the latitude to do some different things , depending on what your ideas do, thanks for looking…grizz

These are gorgeous Grizz and they look great on your new stand. I like the inset idea for the candles too.

Very nice Grizz. I really like the color and contrast of the oak and padauk.
