There's an expression "nose to tail" in cooking that refers to using the whole animal, and that's what we plan to do with the croquet sets. But for now....mallet heads. Gorgeous, fading paint-covered mallet heads. After a quick brainstorm with liz from sticks & bricks, we decided the heads wanted to become candle holders. So, with the addition of some reclaimed wood as a base, that is exactly what they have become.

We are envisioning a two-part candlestick holder workshop....stay tuned!
