Hi Lumberjocks,
Here is my version of a tea light holder. I have a craft fair coming up at work and needed a fast and easy project. Beginning to end, these three took about 3 hours to make—most of it was spent thinking not cutting. I think I can make twice as many in about half the time with a few more iterations of the process The wood is walnut and the dimensions are 3.5 inches wide by 9.5 inches long.
As always, thanks for looking.

Simple but nice looking. Hope they sell for you. Many times the first one takes much longer to figure out.

Looks nice,Just wondering if the candles should be in their glass jars it’s seems to a bit of a fire hazard this way.

Nice, Simple Design

a1Jim—those tealight holder’s come with thin aluminium holder around them, so they’re safe, i’ve used many that i made without glass holders and they worked fine.

My iPhone goofs up my picture rotation, so I apologize for you stiff necks after this one. Purpleheart for the short one and Padauk for the Advent one.

So what is your selling price for something like this. I noticed you took my design idea without the letters and rings from my wedding tea light. I was just curious, I may want to make them again for sale, but haven’t a clue what price to ask for. Thanks for the nice remarks on my project. As your project is beautiful too!

Thank you for the comments gentlemen. Popeyekris, I’m horrible at setting prices,but I was thinking about asking $15 each. I feel like that’s enough to make it worth my time. Any thoughts on that?
