These are the first i feel happy enough to be able to work with, they are made from wood but i have painted them to resemble pewter ( this still needs work) Each candle stick measures just 6mm in height and i have managed to bore them out to accept a nano LED bulb, i have chosen to go with LEDs for two reasons the first being the scale of them and the second being how long they last this will rule out any need for changing bulbs in the future Hopefully next week i will have some actually in the candle sticks to show you how they look. Have a great week everyone. Tony.

Hi everyone, well this week has been full of trials and errors trying to come to a conclusion on how to make the lights for this house, I started off trying to carve candle sticks but to no avail as each time i tried to drill a hole through the centre they just broke!! Hmm Theres very few things i have had to buy in the construction of the house up to now and i was determined to be able to come up with a solution for the lights as knowing that i had managed to make these too would give me an even greater sense of achievement. As i dont own a lathe i just came up with the idea of trying my luck turning a piece of wood in a normal drill, i dont recommend anyone try this! after a few attempts i came out with these.
