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…


Mounted on the lathe and ready to turn…


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!...
