This was a piece of box elder that was too small for any other project. I had a box of these battery operated teal lights so I made a holder just for grins and giggles. The tea light flickers and looked cool on my display at the sale.
The next step is to make one with a very thin lid so the flickering comes through it and no worry about a flame.
This one is made from box elder and finished with EEE and Shellawax. I labeled it wrong! It is not beech.
