    candle tray?

    I had a small spalted cherry croch, and it was to small for a bowl. What to do with it? As the wife loves candles and has them sitting on glass trays all over the house, i said self why don't ya turn that cherry into something she can and will use. Well this is the small tray or plate, or platter. you deside i can't. Thanks and all comments welcome.

    JOB WELL DONE, Stephen! Don't ya jest LOVE Cherry?


    Hey Larry---------------------WE'll accept anything over 2" thick and 4" in diameter.

    I know that I am thankful for the lovely wood you have sent me. It's made my job easy.

    They all have had the purty hidin' inside, so all I have to do is remove the stuff not needed to have a beautifull piece.

    Sorry, to hijack the thread, but Larry needs a big THANK YOU for his generosity!

    This is mine.

    That's a great little tray, Stephen. With as many candles as we have in the house, LOML could use a bunch of them.
