Tea Light Holder ★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

from Aschi’s Workshop WOODCRAFTER’S HAVEN ★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★ Doily made by Enid Aschenbrenner-Webb

To make up for all the time spend in the workshop and to make women in your life happy, how about a little woodworking job that says “I love you”? A candle is always a nice gift, this one adds that special something. It shows Mom (wife, girlfriend) how you feel about them. This is a simple, easy to make tea light holder for Valentines Day (or mother’s day) even a young, inexperienced woodworker can handle, an ideal project for Dad to tackle with children too. It would also make a good group project for charity. There are many ways to make it, go through your scrap pile and look for a fairly thick piece of lumber (wood). We used a scrap timber of 12 mm (!?2") thickness for our sample. Transfer the heart pattern onto the wood twice. Drill the hole for the tea light before cutting the pattern! A large chunk of lumber/wood is easier/ safer to hold in the drill press then a small heart. Drill the 38 mm (1!?2") hole 12 mm (!?2") deep. If you don’t have a drill bit that size you can also cut the hole with a scroll saw. The standard size for tea lights is

38 mm (1!?2"), check your lights and make sure the hole is big enough. If it’s too tight just sand a bit off the inside of the hole. After you’ve drilled the hole, cut the two heart shapes and glue them together. Sand well. Depending on what kind of wood you used you can finish with a coat of clear var-

nish, stain or even paint the heart a red. Have the kids help! Let them each decorate a heart. Polka dots and stripes can be fun too. These are so quick and easy to make, cut out a bunch to decorate a big table. Let the kids take them to school to hand to teachers and friends… spread a little love! ☺

The 2 foot gauge or light Railway system can be found anywhere in the world. This kind of railway system was (and is currently still) used mainly in forestry, logging, as well as in underground situations, sugar and tea plantations, gold fields, brick fields, and basically anywhere where railway systems were needed to transport goods and people at a low cost. The landscape also played an important roll in the usage of this steam train. In some areas it was just not possible to build a full-size railway system, or it was not economical. However, even today there are still a number of 2 foot gauge railway systems in use all over the world. The

Darjeeling-Himalaya railway system in India is probably one of the most famous 2 foot railway systems still in use. England is, of course, still a mecca for light railway systems. Australia and South America has sugar trains running on 2 foot tracks. Java is also a place worth mentioning. The European mainland and USA are still using 2 foot railway systems mainly in theme parks. We have chosen a typical English train for our model. The locomotive is a 0-4-0 or B-coupler saddle tank. The wagons are of the older type of 14 to 16 seater carriages, still in use on some museum trains today.
