Well, looking around my supply of rustic wood and had a couple of pieces tell me they wanted to be candle holders. The first three pics are a unique piece of aspen nearly 24” long. It sets on three legs that just happened to be strategically placed branches. The second three pics is a piece of beaver wood picked up along the creek. I used the jointer to give it a flat bottom. Both are finished with several coats of spar urethane.

Nice job. At first I thought it was a knife. Well done. I see you do some great work with found wood.
