Introduction: Picket Fence Tea Light Holders

Picture of Picket Fence Tea Light Holders

Here's a couple of tea light holders I made. The fence part is black walnut, and the base is white oak. The base is about 2 1/4" square, and they are 3" tall. and once again, I only have photos of them complete because I had no idea what I was doing until they were half way done, all I knew was I wanted something with a picket fence and this is what came out of my head. Hope you enjoy!

Those look awesome! If you decide to make them again, I'd love to see how you did it!

Thank You! I plan to make more, just so long as I can remember to take pictures, I will try to post a step by step, but not until the weather gets a bit better(it's pretty nasty around here right now, and I don't have heat in my shop).

They look great, thanks for sharing. How did you make them? My guess would be taking a board to the router table and then cut slats with the bandsaw...

Your guess would be the easy way to make them, I did it the hard way. I cut the slats on the table saw and then cut the miters on top individually on the chop saw, then drilled all the holes one a a time. If I ever make more, I definitely know a few things to make it a whole lot easier.
