SAMANTHA is a hackberry hand turned wooden candle holder that I made from wood responsibly sourced in nearby Franklin County, Kentucky. When not in use as a candle holder, the wood bowl easily doubles as a ring, change, or trinket holder.
This piece comes with the glass insert for a tea light or votive candle. Further, one large (2-1/4″) white, unscented tea light candle is included with this purchase. Notably, the glass sits inside the wood holder and can be removed or refilled with a new tea light or votive candle insert.
This turned wooden candle holder measures approximately 7″ wide by 1-1/2″ tall without the glass candle holder inserted. (With the glass, it’s 2-3/4″ tall.) I finished the wood with high friction polish, which enhances the wood’s natural changes in coloring, tone, and grain.
Finally, I include care instructions for the wood 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.
