Tea Light Holders

Yeah, how about that?  A new page dedicated to tea light holders.  The tea light, from my understanding, originated in Japan to be mainly used in tea ceremonies.  They also used them for ambience in the room.  Now, here in America we use them for all sorts of things.  But, I think the main use is ambient lighting.  I turn these little gems primarily from cut off from various logs, so there will certainly be more.  Stay turned!

Neat little things these tea light holders are!  They take up hardly any room at all, and do put out a nice subtle amount of candle light.  Born from Japanese tea ceremonies, these little lights are steeped in tradition.  The grain patterns of this one, being turned from cedar elm are remarkable as well as the natural colors.  This particular one has a really neat looking shallow crack along one side that was filled to a point with clear glue.  I didn’t fill it quite all the way so the dark color around it was left intact.  Metal grommet for holding the candle is imported from Germany. The holder comes with 3 candles.  The diameter is 4 ½” and the height is 1 ½”.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and the finishing was done with orange oil wax.  This gives the tea light holder a nice long lasting natural finish.  17Jun20  CHCE3  $20.00 and $3.00 S&H  Shipping price listed is for standard shipping with Continental United States.  All other areas contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

Shapely Bodark Tea Light Holder

One thing that can always be said about bodark is that it is a darned hard wood.  Very dense, yet to me quite nice looking.  It does have a very distinguished grain pattern.  Another interesting thing about this wood is that is turns a burnt orange color over time.   Nothing you can do about it.  Mamma Nature wants it this way.  For those who were wondering, this wood is also known as Osage Orange.  The wood on this holder was sealed with the food grade walnut oil that I use on my bowls and so on.  The finishing was done with a walnut oil based wax.  All this gives the holder a more satin type finish which looks really good with this wood.  The tops diameter is 3 ½” and the base diameter is 4 ½”.  The height is 2 ½”.  The metal grommet that holds the candle is fixed into the wood.  The holder come with 3 candles.  19May20  CHBA2  $25.00 and $5.00 S&H  Shipping price listed is for standard shipping with Continental United States.  All other areas contact me with zip code for shipping costs.
