Kinkead is a wooden candle holder made from cherry wood sourced right here in Bourbon County, Kentucky. This one-of-a-kind handmade item comes with the glass tea light cup and one unscented white tea light.
I attached leather to the base to protect the surface on which it sits. For the leather, I used offcuts, which would otherwise be considered waste. I get these offcuts from a leather & tack shop just down the road from my woodshop. This leather shop is perhaps best known for handcrafting the halters of a number of Derby horses.
This wooden candle holder measures 3-1/2″ tall (without glass) and 3-3/4″ at its widest point. Additionally, I include care instructions with the purchase of this piece.

A little about me….
I’m a historical archaeologist and spend my days excavating sites, analyzing artifacts, and writing up my findings. When I’m not in the field, you’ll find me in my woodshop. I primarily use found and reclaimed wood from here in Central Kentucky. It’s my hope that incorporating elements of the wood as I found it into each piece serves as a reminder that the object you see once was part of a beautiful, living tree.
