    I love the looks of the arched candle holders, Im thinking of using a 1.25 inch fortsner and cutting 1/2 inch deep for tealights only, this way the 3 arches can nest inside of each other when not in use, just a visual thing.although yours will take atealight also, Im just too lazy to go out an buy voltive glass

    Thanks Allen. If they're just for looks, that'll work great. I tried just the metal cups (which can be burned with the cup enclosed in a recess) but the metal showed where the arch declines and I didn't like that so much. The clear plastic cups look good but warn that they should stand in the open when burning (as in not dropped into a recess).

    I also played with just setting the candle itself in a properly sized hole. That looked cool but, like the plastic cups, knowing the folks I hang out with, one of them would light the candle, leave for the market and burn their house down . These are easy and fun to make. Great scrap eaters too.

    I like those Glenn. Obviously you consider them a "set". Any idea what the price tag would say in a gift shop?

    Cheers.

    never thought about the descent of the arch, yeah, the tin will stick out, so how bout cutting the holes a bit deeper, will be planted deeper, but I think will give same look. Ill have to try it out when Im home and see how it looks on one of them
    Id guestimate the cost of that at 29-39 dollars, because I dont think anyone would pay much more even though they are hand crafted.(but I shop at walmart also)Overstock...................com has a set of six, not as nice ofcourse as Glens, but similar design, for 39.00

    That is a great idea Allen. I'm gonna give that a try, thanks!
