Just the latest of many form the Bits & Pieces collection in an effort to find some different shapes.
They all look real good from here, Chas. The beading on the last two pairs looks very clean. Are you using a beading tool, or are you simply a master of the skew?

I like the first and last ones Chas but not quite so keen on the 2nd ones. Glad to see your beading tool is paying it's way though.
Good work Chas. My favorite is the first pair. IMHO, The other pairs hide the beauty of the wood.
As Pete mentioned I use a beading tool Vaughn, no way could I do those beads with a skew and get then that even with a skew in the few seconds the tool takes. Main problem is keeping a clean cut on the end grain especially with the spalted beech.
I wondered about the masking of the wood character Mohammad by it's not so bad when viewed in daylight, just trying to do something different to cater for differing tastes and customer choices rule.
Theres a few more plainer ones in the Bit Link below.
I understand what you are saying Chas.
Wow, that is a lot of turnings on your web site. I think I will go back to the site when I have more time.
Put me in the camp that likes both of them. I like the beaded ones. I bet you could get a pretty neat 'beehive' shaped one with that beading tool...
Really nice looking Tea Lights. I like the first set.

I like them all, but in general, I like everything you do Chas

Great looking tea lights. I like the first two the best they show off the grain better. I always wondered about using tea lights in wood, is there a problem of them catching on fire?
