Chunky Yew Candle Holder

My brother made this chunky, rustic candle holder for us for Xmas. He thinks the yew comes from a very old tree. He specialises in rustic greenwood furniture and accessories like this candle holder – I think it’s always nice to receive something hand-made – we have certainly been putting it to good use! (see The Green Man link on the right).
