Last week we were supposed to have Thanksgiving at my mom’s house, but on Monday she was hospitalized for gallstones (she’s fine and is out of the hospital now) so obviously she wasn’t able to host Thanksgiving as planned.

My great-uncle and great-aunt stepped up and put together a last minute Thanksgiving so I decided on Wednesday to make something to show my appreciation. My great-aunt likes candles so I used the parametric 3D model I’d previously designed in Fusion 360 to make this candle holder out of :proofgrade: walnut plywood:

The leaf/turkey/corn/pumpkin images were designed by Freepik although I had to modify the corn image some to make it work. (I used the others unmodified, although the turkey lost his face as I didn’t have the time to modify the face to work.)

And yes, my great-aunt loved it. :slight_smile: Thanksgiving dinner was great and my mom got out of the hospital a few hours later.
