Here is our Thanksgiving centerpiece candle holder. I got the idea from Steve Ramsey over at woodworkingformeremortals and kept it pretty simple. I really like basic shapes and clean lines and this one has a kind of Japanese style to it. It’s made from curly maple and bloodwood (Satine). I finished it with a few coats Daly’s Seafin Teak oil. Everyone loved it, so I’m already making a few more. Thanks for looking!

Wow, that would make a great gift for an office Christmas party gift. If it’s one of those where you can choose to open a new gift or take the last one opened, you could start a lot of fights…

If imitation is the best form of flattery, consider yourself flattered. I am going to make a few of these.
