As you are finding out, wood turning can be addictive. You are making a great start. Wait until you start making bowls. Every chunk of firewood you see has potential as a turning.

Personally I always get a bit nervous when items that involve fire like your candle holders are smaller at the base than the top. I can just visualize them tippling over and at the least making a waxy mess or worse starting a fire. If you think you want to modify the ones you made you could always add a base piece to them.

Nice projects, they all look good.
