Padauk Oriental Tea Light

Loosely inspired by the large overhangs common in Japanese temples and castles, I set out to capture that feature in my first tea light holder. Though I’ll stop short of claiming success, I did learn quite a lot from turning this gorgeous piece of padauk. I have not ruled out tossing this one back on the lathe in the future now that I have more experience.
