These candle holders (3.5" to 6" in height)
were made by chainsawing the Persimmon logs
into sections roughly 20" long by
half the original 12" diameter of the log.
Using a bandsaw,
the short sections were rough cut into blanks.
The blanks were prepared for drying
and air dried for four months.
The candle holders each received one coat of gloss urethane resin finish
followed by six coats of wipe-on satin urethane resin finish.
