I found this hunk of wood in the park back in the fall, and it was interesting enough that I brought it home. I left it in the garage for a few weeks to dry out, then I dropped it a few times to make sure the wood was solid enough to work with. And only a few little pieces broke off, so I knew I was good.
First we leveled out the wood with these little screw-in feet. I’m not sure what they are actually called, but they were in a baby food jar in the garage so I’m going with that.
Then I measured a routing drill bit to fit the size of a standard tea light. Sorry for the blurry.
Then we drilled holes in our hunk o’wood.
Sprayed it with lacquer.
And here is the finished product.
And the finished product on fire.
How’s THAT for instruction?
