I made this candle holder a few years ago in high school. The body is made out of red oak and the feet are mahogany. I saw the character this piece of “scrap wood” had with the worm holes and burr grain, and I think that’s why I like it so much. Critiques welcome… thanks for looking.

Nice looking holder. Funny thing I just watch them make this on PBS last weekend.

That’s cool, beats the cheap metal one my wife bought at a garage sale.

Nice job on the project. I really like it when a craftsman sees the story the wood is trying to tell. You obviously saw the story. Sometimes I just fall into it. Glad you saved this scrapwood and made something nice out of it.

I really liked that design when I first saw it on Woodsmith Shop. It’s been on my list since. Yours turned out very nice!
