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!!!

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.
