I have started on some of my holiday makings. This is one that I have been wanting to make for awhile. I put in some black for background just so you could see the cut-outs.
The luminary is made of 1/4" Cedar. I just love the different color variations you get with Cedar. I know that most people do not use the pieces of wood that have the white edges, but I love those color differences. I also left the bottom unfinished so that a person could smell the cedar. The luminary is 5 1/2" square and 9 3/4" tall.
