Create two different candle holders using contrasting accent strips and the same band saw technique.
Sometimes, projects that look quite challenging at first glance are really pretty simple to build. And that's the case with these two sets of candle holders. Each starts out as a square block of hardwood that's been cut to rough size. Then to create the unique look, you make curved cuts on the band saw and glue in the accent strips. This article will lead you through the technique step-by-step.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
