American Flag Log Candle

We had a tornado hit South East Michigan back on April 12th. They are calling it "Straight Line Winds", but let me tell you…we are calling it a tornado. Tons of damage through out our small town…including a huge Oak that fell in our yard. Our neighbors lost a Maple and gave us the wood which was so generous because we heat our home with our fireplace throughout the Winter. So…I decided to use one of the logs to make this cool "American Flag Log Candle". See how I did it here:
