DIY-scrap-wood-candle-holder in a Few Simple steps
Hi, it’s David from Cheltenham Road, and I have a scrap-wood problem.Well, scrap, wood may not be the problem – the real problem is, it can throw my indignation, and even the smallest pieces of scrap wood, because “I MIGHT NEED IT!!!!!”So, as the pile of small pieces of wood to grow in my garage, so my need is to find out, to do something with them, and, lately, I’ve been playing around with scrap -wood-candle-holder. I thought I’d share one of my ideas. DIY-wood-candle-holderFor this project I used:Outdoor Mod PodgeMatte Mod PodgeScrap plywood, sand paper, white craft paint, scrapbook PaperCraft knife3/4″ Forstner bits (shown), or spade BitMod hodgepodge miracle GlueChop seen or in the hand sawDrill Press or Electric drill clampsFirst of all, I cut my scrap of plywood into squares with my chop saw.the Basis of square 4.5 x 4.5 inchesthe second place was 3.5 x 3.5 inchesthe third top place is the one that holds the candle and drill for the one I needed to have a hole in the middle. I have my drill and 3/4″ Forstner bit.to Me it is clear, however, that not everyone has access to this particular piece of machinery. So this step can be done easily, with a basic drill, as long as you take the proper precautions.It would be hard to hold or clamp the small 2.5 x 2.5 square in place while you drilled through you. So, before you cut the plywood to size, mark the size of the final space and mark the center.you Place the marked plywood on top of a piece of scrap wood and clamp them both on your work table.Then the eyes, then drill carefully through the middle with a 3/4″ Forstner (shown), or Spade Bit. After you’ve drilled the hole, you can cut the piece to size.I gave each piece a good sanding and then painted it with white craft paint and after they dried, grind and gave it to them in a different light, just to smooth out any rough spots.I cut my scrapbook paper down to size and I have Matt Mod smorgasbord to stick it to the wood blanks.Once the paper had dried I cut off all the excess paper out of my wooden candle holder. Then I went back to my craft knife and trimmed block out of the hole in the top of the page.I glued all three blocks together with Mod smorgasbord of wonder glue and then sealed with Outdoor Mod-hodgepodge for a good, durable finish.So, I think there are about a million variations that you could do with these wooden-candle-holder.The waste wood could be cut into circles or rectangles. you can use sections of raised wooden candle holder centerpiece with a long block with a different height. The paper could be coordinated, for wedding, colors, Christmas, wrapping paper, etc, etc.With this wood candle holder that I think maybe I stumbled across a fun and easy way to shred! See!!!???
