Cornish and East Lothian Candle Holders

Three new driftwood candle holders.
Hand crafted from wood I collected from Tyninghame Beach in East Lothian and Crackington Haven in North Cornwall.

After I collect the driftwood, it is placed in my outside wood store for around a year, then stored indoors for approximately three months.

The process of making starts with removing any bark with my bushcraft knife, then coring holes for the candles. This is followed by an initial sanding with two grades of paper using an electric sander, then the long slow process of hand sanding with another four or five grades of paper before two coats of wax and polishing.
