My Latest Project


Hello and happy Wednesday!

Over the weekend I finally got started on my cedar post candle holders.  These remnants were left over from the pergola we had installed back in May.  When I saw these laid over in a pile, I knew immediately what I wanted to do with them.


We bought a 4 1/8 inch Hole Dozer Hole Cutter to use with our drill.  This was not a fast project.  It was a very SLOW project.  Something like 3 1/2 hours.  :)



After I drilled down the depth I wanted, I began to chisel out the wood.  OMG!  It's a good thing I had the vision of what I wanted and the determination to push through.  It helped that the wood wasn't really hard.


I only managed to hollow out two of them.  I still have two more to go!  I am sure there is a better way to do this...hopefully one of you will enlighten me!  I'm always open for new ideas!


As you can see, they are still in rough form.  I will need to sand the tops and the inserts to smooth them out.  I can't wait to actually use them.  Could be next summer?!

Have you ever done anything crazy like this?  If so, I'd love to hear about it!

Take care,
