As a woodturner I try to make things as well as I can and as a skinflint I also try and make them as economically as possible. One of the things I like to do is use and adapt items that often get thrown out or broken. This is a good example. The globes and funnels from old oil lamps are often just thrown out but when I can get them I use them to make candle and t light holders. This one is in cedar and can hold either a 1 /2" dia. candle or a standard t light. The base is cedar and as with all my t light and candle holders has a metal insert to take the wax.
