Very pretty. I am assuming you use some kind of stabilizer to keep the bark from chipping off. What kind are you using?

The candle holder could double as a table lamp if using a low heat source like l.e.d.'s

Thank you for your comments.

Mikechell: I run a bead of CA glue along the cambium layer of the bark and that stabilizes it MOST of the time. I find that the greener the wood, the better success I have with the bark staying intact. Also, the harder the wood (Oak, Walnut, Pear, for instance), the better the bark stays attached. The longer the log sits before turning, the more liable it is to separate, hence; "greener is better".

Aard: Never thought of that. It is possible since I turn the Candle Trees from green wood and hollow out the stem to prevent cracking.
