Woodworking Christmas Gifts

Our good friend who lives up in Byron, Georgia very thoughtfully each Christmas makes beautiful Christmas ornaments for each of our children and also for us.  We have packed our Christmas ornaments away for the year and I did not think to take pictures before they were put away.   Too bad!

He also made some more very beautiful and thoughtful woodworking gifts for us this Christmas, which I will show you in the below photos.

Black Walnut Candle Holder

Our friend usually finds his wood for his woodworking projects when he spots a downed tree.  For these candle holders he used wood from a Black Walnut tree,  which this time he found at a Wood Pallet Mill up in Robbinsville, North Carolina.

Black Walnut is such beautiful wood and was perfect wood for these beautiful candle holders.

He used  glass globes from a ceiling fan as the globes for these candle holders ... What a good idea!

What a cute and unusual pair of matching candle holders.  I know just the right spot
in our blue family room to put this beautiful gift.

The fireplace mantel looks like just the right home for these adorable candle holders.

He made this seven inch jug as a gift also.  He shared with us that someone was clearing land up in Houston County near Warner Robbins, Georgia and he found this Cedar wood where the land was being cleared.

Cedar Wood Jug

This is amazingly beautiful wood with all of the wood knots and swirling different colored wood.

He out did himself with these beautiful gifts.  It is hard to believe he is able to make these items 
from downed trees and to make them with such precision.

Black Walnut Wood Vase

I love looking at the heartwarming glow of candlelight,  made even more special
knowing they are gifts from a good friend.
