Step 1: Wood/tools
Step 2: Wood Cuts
45 degree slab makes for good plaques. Drill holes out and mortise chisel where needed.
Step 3: Branch Pencil
Cut branches. Drill hole for lead. 3/32 or 5/64 bit. By extra big pencils and split for the lead. Glue in the lead piece and wittle to a point. I added cotton string to each pencil
Step 4: Paint Something and Seal.
I used free hand for painting. Sealed with polyurethane. Used up some old copper fittings for paper hanger.
Step 5: Tea Candle Holder
Here I used wood from angle cuts. Bored out. Split a piece of 1/2 copper pipe and pounded out for a flame guard.
Cut in half a soup can lid. Bent to fit for front half of candle.
