I took a log cutoff that was cracked pretty good and was making a natural edge candle holder when a section of the bark flew off. I wasn’t worried about the visible cracks as they would be covered by a candle. I started to throw it away but laid it on the table instead. I went on to something else then I saw this piece of bark I had cut of another log with my chainsaw. I cut the turning off even with where the bark came off with my miter saw. I then screwed the bark section to the flat side of the holder. I didn’t smooth the inside of the back off as I wanted a rustic look. I though it turned out kinda interesting and different.

Thanks Jim. I usually don’t go quite this rustic but I simply used some pieces I had to rescue it. I really don’t know why I had kept the bark backing except I rarely throw wood away unless it’s just to bad to keep.
