This incense stick holder has been cut and carved by hand from pine in central Scotland.
Having used incense stick holders for some time I find the ones that I usually find to have ash grooves that are shallow and narrow. My holders have a wider groove, meaning less precision lining up of the stick and a deeper groove to allow less trips to the bin, and greater surety that the ash will stay in the groove.
This one has been finished using my take on a traditional Japanese technique normally used for building cladding but I think it looks really cool applied to some household items and I especially love it for incense holders because it's brilliant to burn something in something burnt.
It measures approximately 23cm (9") long and 2.8cm (1 1/8") wide.
If you want a specific wood or finish, please message me and I'll see what I can do.
