Tea lights in Spalted Beech. Idea cribbed from some I'd seen in Heligan Gardens, Cornwall.

Candle-Holder-in-Oak

Candle holder in Oak inspired by childhood memories when we used a light of this type before we had "the electric".

Goblet in Walnut with captive ring on the stem. The trick is to get the wood ring to stretch over the foot!! (not really, I made that up!)
