A small but striking piece, this votive holder made out of a scrap of Aromatic Red Cedar. The sides were all cut square, with the exception of the live edge. After the live edge as cleaned of all loose bark, the whole piece was sanded. The three votive slots were then added on the drill press, and the whole piece was sanded through the grits. It was sealed off with several coats of shellac, making this piece a true natural beauty! Between your burning candles, the gorgeous red hues of the cedar, and the mesmerizing spalting on the live edge, this is a perfect piece of nature in your home, and a wonderful way to make any room instantly more relaxing. Add to your yoga routine, meditations, therapy, reading, tv time, meals, ANYTHING! You'll find the experience enhanced.

This is a HIGH quality board, with a stone inlay on solid Black Walnut. This was my first stone inlay, so as you can see, there were some cosmetic glitches in the stone, resulting in small circles. Don't worry though: these are solely cosmetic! The durability and usability of the board is still top notch, with all holes being filled. It is 10.5 x 15.5 x 2 inches, making this a large, beautiful addition to the kitchen. It has been properly oiled, and ready to find it's home! Give this quirky piece some love!
