Votive Candle Trays
Votive candle holders are usually round glass cups where the candle sits low in the glass. One problem with these holders is that they get very hot and you can burn your fingers on them.
The holders shown here are square and have a low profile. I designed several versions of trays that hold five candles until they evolved into the shapes shown below. The main structural pieces are made from Hard Maple.
The feet and the handles use three different exotic wood species (see images below).
The tray measures 14" long x 4" wide x 3" high.
People who bought these tell me that, in most cases, they were intended as gifts for weddings, holidays and birthdays. They also said that they make great center pieces. Unlike other candles, these votive candles burn down without posing a fire danger.
