Made from a scrap piece of a live edge walnut table, the top of the tealight holder was the “live edge” part, but there was dirt on it. So i brushed it with a wire brushed a it and it looked real cool, i chamfered the edges on a whim with a plane, what do you guys think of it?

Nice tea light holder. Did you use a hand wire brush or a wire wheel?...............Jim

Thanks, I used a hand wire brush with very stiff bristles.

Really like the wire brush texture. The chamfered edges add to the worn, aged look of the piece. Is the front edge cut at an angle or is it just camera angle? Thanks for sharing Joel!
