    I take it these are fairly large (12" or so.) Can you post a pic of one of the finished ones from last year? I might be interested in doing a few, if you don't mind.

    Ditto. Can we see a pic of the finished project? (Or maybe I should just do a search and find last years post. ;o) )

    with the purchase of the new table saw blade (old one had become ever so slightly warped after about 5 year of hard use), i'll be setting up the sled tomorrow to make the half lap cuts in the walnut and maple parts.

    Dan i like these but....my concern as a buyer would be where does wax go when i light these candles.

    Is there not a option to say add a piece of say frosted glass to the base with some thin stick on clear rubber dot feet.

    Just thinking aloud but at one point in time Linda had a glass cutting board much like I am describing.
    It was pretty tough and edges were ground and it was cheap.

    That would permit cleaning off of wax. Of course most probably dont light the candles i guess.

    I would also look to see if say a place like Michaels or a dollar store has a wreath sized to be able to accomodate the holder in the middle and show it as a center piece.

    Little marketing touches to help provide prospective online buyers with how to present it. Adds contrasting color to show wood.

    Just some thoughts .
