While I was making this Rustic Candle Holder Centrepiece I stumbled across this Birch log.

This project was super quick and simple.

I started off by finding a log that was about 6 inches in diameter, something that I could easily and safely cut on my Miter saw.

Once I had marked approximately where I wanted to make my cuts it was time to chop the ends off of the log making it nice and flat.

This log could hold 3 tea candles nicely so using a Forstner bit 1″ 9/16ths or 40mm I drilled my holes approximately 5/8ths or 15mm deep.

And that’s it! πŸ‘

Success! You're on the list.
