Dave, Very pretty wood and the flame is nice! Pictures are OK I started messing with my camera and change the settings a bunch to see what works best. I use the daylight setting with 200 asa and that works good most times. Then I can manipulate them on the computer also to correct any problems I have. I use a Roxio Photo suite program for that.

Very nice little lights,

Jeff

Wow those look way better than the one I made. How did you finish it and did you glue the candle in place or can you still remove it?

Jarrod, that finish is laquer and you can remove the little bottles

Dave,
You have that lacquer finish down pat. Are you spraying it on?
