just a little offset to the glasses is this candle holder in yew. this started of as a yew branch and couldn't detract from the grain of this timber.

Nice candle holder Dennis. I like the way you have blended in to the glass by making a small dome in the yew.

How do you find the candle sits in the glass

this candle is not very good in this holder but it was the only one I had for the photos. I have been enjoying my self doing this type of turning product. I have to do a few glasses for the ( you guessed it ) HMS Trinkomalee so will get started this weekend with them. as well as other turned items.

Dennis you have worked with the grain beautifully, that's a nice looking candle holder. Just one thing that doesn't work for me is the glass, but that's only my opinion and I understand that it is a traditional form of candle holding.

well Derek here are the wine glasses that I have turned today the timber is of HMS Trincomalee and it about 400 year old if it is the original timber when laid down in 1817. it is malibure teak and is very oily.

What a treat Dennis to be working a wood with so much history, the stem flows nicely with the curves of the glass and the figure on the inside of the box is particularly striking.

What finish did you use to compliment the natural oils of the Teak
