    They look good John, but I have to ask, with a tall candle in them, are they "tippy"

    Did you use some cups in the top where the candles fit?

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the comments guys. Stuart their is a cup for a 1ins thick candle in the top I made the base 3ins in diameter to assist the stability of the holder and it seems to work ok (thats if the table is stable) so far their has been no feedback of any problems.

    Chuck may need to sell them a fire extinguisher

    The reason I say this is that I have had people ask about mine. Are those wood? Wont they burn when the candle gets down?
    I tell you it is really hard some times to keep from saying yup there wood and hears your sign.
    Oh and the candle look good.

    It always amazes me that people walk into a wood turner's booth at a show and always, always ask "Is this wood?"
