Tea light holder

I had this piece of Zebra wood and was not sure what to do with it. So after looking at it for two months I decided to make a cool looking tea light holder, I used Oak for legs. This holds 10 candles and finished with a few coats of clear polyurethane.

Beautiful piece of wood Todd…and a really neat use of it as well. That would look great sitting on someones mantle or on dinning table. Foofy wood for a foofy project. Did ya have to hold your pinky up at all times while working on it buddy??? lol Nice build sir

What size bit did you use for the holes? I made a bunch of tea-light holders for Christmas gifts and I used a 1-1/2” Forstner bit and it was a very snug fit. I’m wondering if a 1-5/8” bit would be too big? Plus I can’t find any of the larger bits locally.

Nice job!

Looks good. Serious question: any danger of this thing igniting? What can be done to minimize the danger of fire, or this just paranoia?
