Wooden Hand-turned Candleholder #48

$ 12.00

This unique hand turned Maple candlestick (or maybe candledish?) will hold wax and battery electric votive candles (one included) and 1 1/2 inch wax tea light / chafing dish candles. (See photos.)   It is ideal for romantic or festive dinner tables, general decoration, emergency lighting and Holiday arrangements. It can unobtrusively, yet loyally, sit in a corner as a nightlight

 

The log that ‘gave its life’ for this treasure was almost firewood. And after using it creatively, the ‘scrap’ was still hiding something inside in need of freedom and a new life. On my lathe, I peeled away every shaving that didn’t belong yielding this little fellow.

It is only 1 3/8 inches tall and 3 3/4 inches wide and hand turned of Maple wood. The finish is a penetrating “Teak oil” finish. I choose this finish instead of polyurethane to protect the wood yet not hide the grain and character of the wood under several coats of a poly-‘plastic’. It is important to me to see and feel the warmth and texture of the wood.
