Just a few things I made for family and friends at Christmas. The second picture is a simple version of candle holders degoose posted a while back. The third pic is an idea from Houtje using up small scraps and cutoffs. The clock was made for my nephew’s girlfriend’s parents.
As normal, that time of year doesn’t really afford one much time, so these simple projects were perfect as far as that goes and they were all well received.
As always, thanks for looking and any comments/critiques are appreciated.

They all look great Brad. I will take on your advice about simpler Christmas gift projects as it makes a lot of sense to me.

Great projects Brad, really like all of them! Wood combinations are right on. The candle holder in the 4th picture with 2 candles in it, is the actual candle holder just glued into the 2 support legs, or is there a spline or something? Wonderful ideas here and I can imagine that everyone was very happy to receive one!

I only wish my people wanted simpler things. Mine seem to like large furniture.

Your pieces are beautiful. Love the selection.

Nice Brad.
I too like the 4th pic with the glass holders. The dowels add a nice touch.

Thanks a lot LJ’s! I appreciate the kind words and another thanks to degoose and Houtje.

@ Gene- Nope, no splines were needed. The legs sit snuggly in a dado about 3/8” deep with a little glue.
