ICDT votive holderI think one of the most rewarding parts of being a woodworker is the creative process. You start with an idea, either a request from someone or just something you want to build. It begins as an image in your head; a table, cabinet or in this case a candle holder. Now that “concept” can look a lot of different ways in your head and can have a variety of differing features. How many candles? What kind? What shape? Should it be simple and quick, or require a bit of engineering? My next step is to hit books and the internet to see what others have created. Sometimes a shape or clever concept grabs your attention and you tuck it in the back of your head. As woodworkers, most of us want to leave our mark on a design, so we’d rather adapt concepts than copy. Good for us! With some ideas in mind, I hit the drawing board, or in today’s reality – SketchUp.
