Below is my original pin which inspired my houses. These are simple house candle sticks available from Ladies and Gentlemen here. But it was the incredible wood grain that made me pin them.
Below is another pin fom my collection from Basic Label Sweden here. I loved the simplicity of form.
I started by slicing some slabs off the end of the 4 x4. They were from 3/4" - 2" thick. I didn't measue but made them random thicknesses.
I then sanded all sides smooth on a belt sander. It was important to sand with the grain to emphasize the wood grain lines.
The end result is a collection of simple houses with stunning wood grain to be displayed in any number of nooks and crannies in our home.
