A friend of mine just bought her first house. I told her I would make her a small gift. Hopefully she likes these candle holders.

The ends are made of Padauk, and the main boards are Bocote. It was a fairly simple project, but I was hoping to make something that would work with almost any decoration she decides to use in her home.

The boards are all 3/4 inch thick for durability; with three coats of Tung Oil and then two coats of Poly.

I like it … them!
Everyone can use a candle holder! Never used Bocote!

If you look at my projects you will see that I make candle holders too!
I used Padauk too! I used Poplar for the holder parts.
