these were Steve Good inspired projects. Made with walnut legs and wormy chestnut bases. I actually made two of the round ones. I think they’d look good as a centerpiece.

I plan to put some additional coats of poly on these. Very easy project to do, and I’m having fun working with the joinery and building those skills.

I plan to make more of these as gifts, but using different wood combinations.

I love the design and I LOVE walnut! Nice work. Sometimes these candle holders look so plain jane but your design, though simple, works very well here in this application. Get it!!!

Very nice, I see some Oriental flavour in the design :)

These look very nice. Steve Good inspired these? (I’ve always liked the things he has done). Very cool. I’ll have to see what he has on his site. I actually have some walnut that’s looking for a project. ;)

check the dimensions of your tea lights before drilling your hole though. I had to go up a size. It’s not easy to re-drill the hole if you screw it up…

I also didn’t drill the holes through and put the bottom piece on. I drilled the holes shallow enough that it shouldn’t be a problem to remove the tea light once it’s burned out.
