Auction of Bamboo Candle holders to support our forum.
« on: April 13, 2008, 03:35:17 PM »
There is a new auction up on ebay for bidding. :)
These 8pcs. were made from a whack of bamboo I cut down from a friends land.
They'll also make nice accent pieces for your home. 
These pieces are dried, sanded and finished.
Other uses at our house, they have been used as small planters and on some of the larger pieces we have inserted citronella canisters in the cavities when outside entertaining.
We hope you enjoy and happy bidding everyone! :)

Look great,  8) 8)

What is the process for converting these to the candle holders? Drying a problem?

Are they weighted in the bottoms to keep from tipping?

Each stem has joints that conveniently act as holders that can hold sumpthin. ;D
Basically cull stems and pick out different sizes and make into sets.
I cut them on my mitre saw to whatever size each stem will give me, then dry for a few months.  Then sand and finish.
It could be anything a person wanted to hold from brushes to plants.

 

The only real drying problem is I dry them in my garage.  If I left them outdoors bugs would get into them.  My garage gets really hot in summer.

I had thought about putting some weight in the bottom parts of the stems but that would add too much cost to shipping. It could easily be done with any type mortar.
We haven't done it because we only burn outdoors.
For outside, I'll put stakes in the ground and set the stem on top of the stake.
