Sometimes you need to stray from a usual design and come up with something new, but useful. In this case I created a unique looking pillar candle holder for my daughter. Although it looks like three separate pieces they are all fully attached and a single item.
Every once in awhile I start to glue a a few pieces of wood together and let the result help me decide what I'll actually make out of it. Such is the case with this candle holder. It started with three old antique pieces of pine left over from a number of old shelves I tore out of my house when I first moved in.
Sometimes when you walk by your scrap pile you notice a piece of wood that is just begging for you to do something with it. That was the genesis of this little guy. It was a left over scrap from a cutting board that I made a few months back.
