Rather than respond to the challenge of an eccentric tea light, I choose to turn a segmented tea light with a bonus saucer to set it on.
The style of segmentation is called open segment meaning that there are gaps between the segments making up the ring. However, nearly every open segment requires a couple of closed segment rings for a top and/or bottom. Closed segment is where there are no gaps between the segments.
This tea light has a base of solid walnut; 6 open segment rings of walnut each containing 18 segments; and 1 closed segment ring of maple containing 12 segments. There is a total of 121 pieces. It is finished with walnut oil.
The saucer has a base of solid walnut and 1 closed segment ring of 12 segments for a total of 13 pieces. Together there are 134 pieces. The saucer is finished with walnut oil.
