You know that you can make your own tealight holders – all you need it the proper forstner bit. But this time we go a step further and actually make tealights! The technique I used to make the mold – vacuforming – can be used for many other shapes, too, and you can use it […]
Category: Tealight Holders
Has there ever been a better analogy for life, love or craftsmanship than the common tealight holder? Of course not. And I could go on and on about them, but instead, I want to inspire you to make your own tealight holders.
Unlike most candle holders, tealight holders can come in many shapes and sizes, and you can find inspiration for them virtually anywhere – you can make simple ones for beginners’ craft projects and give away for Christmas, or go all out and create a Back to the Future themed DeLorean tealight holder. Which I will put on my list, too, because you can never have enough ideas.
In this category, you can find all the tealight holders I have made, inspired by all manner of things and techniques. If you are new to that magical world populated by tealight holders, I recommend you start with this video about the various ways to make a tealight-sized hole.

You probably know that I do enjoy a good tealight holder as much as the next person who is into such a thing. This time I wanted to challenge myself to find more ways to make them, and thus challenge you to be inspired and make your own! This also happens to be my entry […]
It has been a while since I made my last tealight holder (at least it feels like ages), and it has also been a while since Zac Higgins from NV Woodwerks sent me some of his cool Alumilite turning blanks to mess with. So I thought it was fitting to combine these two and make […]
This is my entry for this year’s Scroll Saw Competition put on by Russ Claridy over at Simply Wooden Creations. While I still think that the name of the contest is pretty unwieldy, I do hope that you enjoy this video for the sheer reason that I tried to rhyme my way through it without […]
