    Arched Candle Holders

    Unfinished but, for those of you stuck for an idea on scrap disposal:

    Quickie circle jig (literally just a long drywall screw driven into a hole at each center point)

    A little sanding, BLO and shellac. I'll post a follow up later. I'm getting quite a collection built up for a finishing marathon.

    whoa very nice!
    Focusing your life on only one path does nothing but close your mind to the infinite possibilities that surround us.

    Think out side the box for the box is small, cold, dark, and doesn’t have cookies.

    Man, the work some flatlanders will go through to make round things. Must be lathe envy, if you ask me.

    Those look real nice, Glenn. Great use of scraps.
