    confetti lamp holders - finished!

    a few months ago, the wife picked up some confetti lamps during a visit to rocklers. finally i decided to get rid of some of my odds and ends, and make some holders. after a few false starts, i decided that what was good for tealight candles would be good for these. they won't be done up in sets, but as separate items. the arch is a bit thicker due to the depth of the lamps, and the odd pointy bit of the forstner bit. the size of the arch is 7" wide, 3.5" tall, and 2.25" thick. these are walnut, cherry, ash, and brazilian cherry. the finish will be blo and clear shellac.

    whats that. I still don't see no stinking template, just some pencil squigles on a piece of wood..
