We had a ceiling fan die a few weeks ago. The light globes were too pretty to just chunk so I held on to them until I could think of a use for them. Decided to make some bases for them and add some battery powered votive candles.
The cedar base had a knot in the center that gave out on me. Doesn't really affect it and can't be seen when the candle is covering it.
