Ever wonder what a Pine Limb Knot would look like beneath the surface? These things fall in my yard all the time and I usually just use them to kiindle a fire in my shop heater. I’ve often wondered if you could make something out of one. So, to try something new I squared the base and drilled a 3/4” hole through the middle and glued in a piece of 3/4” dowel rod for strength. It was then attatched to a piece of scrap Walnut for the base. The Pine Knot became the stem of the candlestick holder. It looks something like a poor mans’ Burl.
