Picked up a piece of Cyprus which was thrown away someone had started a turning job.

So I brought it home deepened the centre cup area and used a Rose Engine on it to cut the flutes.

Macadamia Oil and waxed finish

it only has a T-light candle in it at present but will have a larger glassed candle inserted

Spotlight carries a large range of candles and now so do most cheap shops if you have a look there might be able to find them.
