I received a pile of free offcuts from our 19 year old's new profession as an apprentice carpenter. He works at the moment in a stair manufacturing workshop.
What a good boy, bringing plenty of firewood home from the throw-out bin for his Mum who is always cold in winter!
Hang on. I do love firewood for the winter but maybe I can make something.
'Free' is always fun!
I drew a few pencil lines to show him where to trim them for me. I cut right through the middle of the balustrade balls to make a flat surface to hold a candle. I staggered the heights. Then I pulled out some old house paint that was in the garage. I sanded them roughly to make them slightly distressed looking.
