I had to cut about 8 inches off of the bottom of our Christmas tree to make it fit in the house. Seemed like kind of a cool piece of wood to throw out. While trying to figure out what I might do with it I was thinking about lumberjocks. It seems the most common thing around here is to drill a couple holes in it and stick some tea candles in there. After about 2 minutes work I had a candle holder made out of our Christmas tree cutoff. To my surprise the wife really liked it, and wrapped some pine branches around it for a little more flair. We now have our official centerpiece for this Christmas from stuff we were going to throw away.

Nice center piece!

What species is that? Looks real nice, and I’ve never seen pine leaves like that. All we can get up here is Balsam fir which frankly I’m pretty bored of.

Actually the part wrapped around came from my wife’s box of Christmas junk. Not sure exactly where she got it. The tree is a Douglas fir which I prefer over the the standard Balsam

It’s warm and alluring.
