I've not watched the video yet but a quick look at the introductory photograph leads me to offer an educated guess the video is made in Europe--as the top layer of the candle holder looks like European Oak-which I quite like as it has more character than most oaks native to N. America-of course, that's *my* opinion only. I've never worked with European Oak(sometimes known here as English Oak) but would look forward to the opportunity. The finished work looks well executed. Now--a look at your video. Thanks (please let me know if I'm correct about my guess)

Yes it is European oak. I got it from a local floor company. Just some cut off pieces

Yes it is european oak what I used. it was hongarian oak this oak has these beautifull flames in it. And that makes it so special. Thanks for watching the project and the video
