Now that I’m a married man (5 weeks).... I’ve come to the realization that my hours of “sawdust therapy” need to occasionally produce something for the wife. (self-preservation!)

Red Oak and Maple, quick and dirty, I think she likes it.

Any comments would be greatly appreciated, Thanks for looking.

Dustin

Let me take a guess….boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits for the finish!? Looks good bud!

Thanks Guys,

I originally built the candle holder square. After looking at it and realizing it was too blah… I used a sanding drum on my drill press to get it roughed in, and then i sanded it by hand to make all the ridges smooth.

That’s a good looking wooden candle holder. Your wife will surely be happy seeing those candles lighted in the dark.
