Over the past holiday season, I was inspired with a unique idea for candle holders.  As some of you may know by now, I truly hate to throw anything "old" away or worse into the kindling bin.  So I decided to take some of my various structural beam end-cuts that were not big enough for table legs or most anything else and created wonderful candle holders for the holidays (or for anytime of the year).  First I sanded and finished them, then cut square holes just the right size to insert glass votive candles holder.  They make beautiful and practical centerpieces for the dining table or most anywhere you want to place a candle.  If you're looking for a unique gift this just may be the ticket!
