    Candle Hoders Copy

    OK I am a copy cat! But when I saw Glenn's Candle holders I was so impressed that I had to try and make some myself. It was fun to do but I couldn't find the nice glass holders like Glenn used. The most time consuming part was the 6 coats of shelac. The long holder was the one that I used Mahogany on. I have never had much luck with the finish on mahogany. Any advice would be most welcome. Some kind of a filler so as to close up the grain? They are not as good as Glenns but for useing up some scrap wood they were fun to make.

    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!

    Those came out great. They are fun, aren't they?

    Yeah Allen, I'm sure there's no way in the world you could ever build those. Hate to break it to ya, but you do know what you're doing.
