Metal Tealight Holder to attach to light wood

Hiya,

I am looking for metal tealight holders to attach to light wood with small nuts. The wood is too light to screw to.

The tealight holder would be at the end of a small arm that would pass through a small hole in the wood that could be secured with a nut on either side.

Has anyone seen like this?


Rgds,

D

I'm not totally sure if I get what you're trying to do but maybe it's something you could fabricate yourself with brass rod, cut treads for the nuts with a tap and die kit and attach the tea-light cup to the other end with a rivet or something. B&Q sells brass rod and you can get tea-light cups here: https://www.turners-retreat.co.uk/tealight-cup/p1380

Brilliant !!

Thank you. This is exactly what I'm looking for. And all the better that it is in brass.

This is for a piece of furniture that I am making as a pressie for my wife & I wanted 2 candles / tealights coming from it, as you would have on the old pianos for reading the sheet music.

Thank you.
