Bent Wood Votive Holder

This is a creation that dates back about a year and a half and is another of my favorit votive holders and I hope to see more of these creations on this site .
Well I had some bend wood pieces that cracked near the ends and I could not see them go to waste,a look in the scrap bin and I had all the ingredients for this votive stand .
About two hours to get the design from paper to finish project.
Materials are Douglas fir and roasted maple ( heat treated maple )
Finish is wipe on poly .
The Steam bending for this was done with a micro wave and a rubber strap clamp and form .

what a beautiful design! very creative! from scraps, no less…kudos!

Beautiful piece. Out of mistakes fine things can always be made with the proper attitude. You showed that here.
