Back in March, I rough turned a batch of tea light holder blanks and they’re now dry enough to complete. With so many patterns on display, I can’t wait to see them all in a line!

A large batch of blanks waiting to be finished on the lathe. This warm weather we’re having has certainly speeded up the drying process…

I turn the rebates for the candle in every one (instead of drilling). This takes a little longer, but is a nice classy touch…

The first one completed – only 99 more to make!...
