    Candle Holders

    Made these two over the weekend, using cut-offs from other projects.

    Curly Maple and walnut. Maple is finished in shellac, and the walnut is oiled.

    I am scared to death of candles unless it is an outside party. Either way, those are very nice and the finish looks excellent!

    They both look very nice, although the walnut version really stands out to me. I really like the curve.

    The walnut is actually a cutoff from a trestle table base I'm working on The trestles will be 4 X 5 walnut, and this curvy piece is where I cut the 'swoop' into the base to keep it from looking too blocky. I have seven more of them - maybe it's craft show time...

    Yeah, all those 'blisters' or lumps and bumps weren't visible until I pulled the bark off, but when I saw them, I just knew I had to do something with them.

    The piece was actually part of a slab-off when the sawmill was squaring up the log for lumber cuts.

    Same source as yours, BTW.

    Watco Medium Walnut. Two coats. Coat, wait 20 minutes, wipe off excess, wait an hour, do it again. Wax goes on today. (72 hours after last coat).
