Wooden tea lights are a simple turning project. They are wonderful around the house and are a good replacement for a taper candle. Using the aluminum cup makes the safer than most candles. Type of wood, shapes and sizes can all be suited to what you have or to your style.
I've even seen them with 3 to 5 tea lights in one turning! Now that's something different to think about.
|Twisted Napkin Rings and Tea Light Holders |
By: Andy Kuby
This is a quick project with the “you TURNED that?” factor which is based upon information from Barbara Dill and others. Create a coordinated table setting with napkins rings and tea light holders turned from the same timber.
|Tea Light Candle Holder |
By: Robin McIntyre
These tea light candle holders are easy projects that make great gifts. And because they don't take much wood, they would be a great use for some of the pricier exotic woods you may have been thinking of purchasing.
|Turning a Tealight Holder from Scrapwood |
By: Jason Swanson
I turn lots of peppermills and saltmills from segmented staves. I really love the way that I can match the colors to create beautiful turnings. But I end up with lots of remains from the turning process. I needed to figure out how to take the best advantage of this wonderful scrapwood. Follow along as I show you how I use some of this scrap wood to turn a tea light.

|Triangle Tea Lights|
By: Bob Hamilton
In this photo tutorial, Bob shows us how to cut a triangular turning blank and mount it on the lathe. From there, Bob starts his turning making a tenon for his chuck and proceeds to turn a wonderful tea light in a triangle shape with the 3 tips of the design touching, thereby raising the body of the turned piece above the table top.
This project is well photographed making a spatially challenging project simple! If you'd like to turn something different, this might be the project for you!
|Making a simple tea light|
By: Darrell Feltmate
In this photo tutorial, Darrell shows how he uses a glue block to hold the turning blank. Then he turns the shape and embellishes it with a wire burner. Darrell then uses the jaws of his chuck to reverse chuck the tea light to complete the bottom. This is a fun, easy and fast project!
