Rustic Candleholder

blog-150124-candleholdrustic2015 is here, January is almost over and I haven’t posted one thing on my blog. Shame on me. In my defense I’ve been busy with home brew, home improvements and a zillion other tiny projects I’m trying to get in order.

One of the projects that’s been keeping me busy is making rustic candle table decorations for a very special, up and coming family celebration. On my hikes I’ve been selecting the best bits of wood with perfect bark and moss. Once I have it home I quickly dry it and cut the wood into interesting sections.

With a pile of pretty sections I plane a flat base on the bottom of each and remove a column of wood to fit the tea candle. This is a fun project, however finding ways to store everything in my small shop is not an easy task.
