not your bubbe’s menorah


well, maybe your bubbe’s vintage wooden thread spools….

These were fun to make.  I used scraps of barn wood salvaged from a 1750 barn in Huntington, Massachusetts, dropped vintage wooden thread spools onto screws (the spools are removable for easy cleaning) and topped the spools with hex nuts to secure the candles.  The wood was treated and polished with paste wax, and voila! Happy Hanukah!
