Another quick and easy project; start to finish same day.

Love Cocobolo. This is such a beautiful wood. I feel fortunate to be able to work with it, even on a small project like this.

Making it up as I go along (as usual), I’m happy with the idea of using the sapwood and natural edge as the base for these candle holders. That seems to have worked out well.

Finished with Teak oil.

That sapwood sets off the gorgeous grain of that Cocobolo. Way to incorporate it in your projects.
