Little candle holder

My dad brought me up a few little pieces of different wood from his acreage the other day and I threw a piece on the lathe. I didn't know what I wanted to make out of it and just started cutting, working on my technique. It ended up as a little vase looking thing. I need to expand my lathe accessories so that I can make vessels like this, but I am not set up for that yet so I had to use the drill press and a forstner bit to remove the interior waste. It only goes about half deep and I think I'll make another one or two if the wife likes it and put some candles in them for the dinner table. The finish is a couple of different stains, darker at the bottom and lighter at the top, at least that was the goal. Again more experimenting. The clear is finish. The wood is either ash or elm, we weren't sure. It turned easy but was a bit chippy. Thanks for looking!

That's looks cool. I like the rings going down to the bottom of the holder. It adds a really nice touch. Great job my man.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
