Simple DIY candle holder

I wanted to familiarize myself with Sketchup, so I chose a relatively simple build. Having a layout sheet proved to be quite handy. It also helped me to reduce my waste.

I think Sketchup will be of great assistance on larger more intricate builds.

Thanks for watching!

Anachronistic light bulb oil lamp

I saw these little light bulb containers at the local hobby shop and thought about how it would be interesting and unconventional it might be  to use them as an oil lamp..

All in all this was a very simple project, other than drilling through the porcelain for the wick.

Simple DIY Pallet Coasters

I've seen a few of these around the internet, I figured it would make a nice short little video on the process.
Anyone should be able to make these for under $15. Although I use a scroll saw and table saw in the video, you can buy all the materials (including the square dowels I cut) at your local hobby store. Also, you should be able to cut the popsicle sticks with scissors.
Thanks for watching!
