August Fischer & Co. Salvaged Wood Cube Candle Holder

Article number: AF-CANDLE
Availability: In stock (5)
Necessity is the mother of invention...but, you know, not a regular mom, like, a cool mom. When our Foundry founder Anna looked high and low for her ideal taper candle holder (balanced, weighty, minimal, low-profile, natural, unassuming, classic, handle-less-yet-holdable) and she couldn't find it, she designed it herself. Made by hand from diamond-hard maple (the same kind used in the first-ever skateboard decks!) these beautiful, streamlined candle holders are fitted with a subtle flush-mounted brass capital that securely holds even the tallest tapers upright. Perfectly home on all tables and mantles. Just as we designed them to be. 3" x 3".

About the maker: If we can dream it, Dennis (the kind + brilliant old-school woodworking mastermind behind August Fischer) can build it. Many of his handcrafted pieces are made just for us from off cuts and scraps that he rescues from the kindling pile, or from hand-selected locally and sustainably sourced hardwoods. He works with Oak, Cherry, Maple, and Butternut (among others) and takes special care to pick the "prettiest" pieces. To Dennis, the "pretty" ones are those that show the character of the tree, the grain, the knots, the history of its life. Dennis loves history. And a good story. Everyone needs a Dennis. Luckily, we've got one.

Take Care: Finished by hand with Dennis' custom food-safe blend of mineral oil + beeswax, these are built to last. Avoid submerging in water and occasionally recondition the wood with your preferred food-safe wood conditioner (we swear by Old Mill's All Natural Beeswax and Mineral Oil Wood Polish, available right here at The Foundry), being sure to allow enough time for the wood to absorb the oil before its next use.
