Custom Made Amboyna Burl Tea Light Candle Holder

This is one of the nicest Candle holders I have ever Made. It is perfect for those who like Rare and Exotic pieces to display. It is more striking and beautiful than the pictures show. Amboyna Burl is one of the rarest lumbers in the world selling for well over $400 per board foot. This piece of burl came from a tree over 80 years old (considered Old Growth) The Amboyna burl only grows on the Narra trees in SE Asia. It is very rare to get a piece of lumber large enough to make anything solid from as it is usually used for veneer work because of the cost.

This candle holder comes with the 3 candles shown in the pictures, The dimensions for this piece is 8" long x 2-3/8" wide x 1" thick.

I can also make Candle holders of all shapes & sizes. Just let me know what you are looking for so I can provide you with the quality piece made to last a lifetime.

Once this wood is processed to a suitable blank it is hand turned by me on a lathe to get it to the proper size to build the pen. After the pen has been turned to size it goes through a 15 step sanding and processing that takes it from 80 grit all the way to 12,000 grit. It has a glass like finish & is striking in every way. This is one of those gifts that you can buy with confidence that it is something anyone can use , Love & appreciate forever. Surely they will think of you every time they use it.

This item has sold but I can make one very similar & ship within a week or two depending whether I have burl in stock or not.

Everything I make is a 1 of a kind piece of Art. I have a fully equipped shop in NC & can custom make that unique item you have always wanted.

I only use the finest and rarest of exotic woods and burls to custom hand turn gifts for Christmas, Hanukkah, Anniversaries, Birthdays, Mother's & Father's Day, High School or College Graduations, Bridesmaid or Groomsmen Gifts, Secretary Day, Service Awards, Client Recognition and are an outstanding Business gift for Company Promotions.

I take on custom orders for corporate events & or commercial clients for rare decorative pieces.
