Our Pallet Wood Tealight & Incense Burner 01 has been crafted from wood salvaged from an old shipping pallet.
Incense is often used to help create a relaxing mood to help with meditation, massage and many other activities and of course, releasing a pleasant aroma into your room.
Tealights complement incense to create a pleasant ambience. That’s why we made these beautiful decorative pieces to give you an enjoyment of both at the same time if you so wish.
This Shou Sugi Ban Pallet Wood Tealight & Incense Burner 01 has been coloured using Hampshire Sheen Intrinsic colour “White” which shows up as matt cream on burnt wood and really brings out the grain of the wood beautifully.
The incense stick holder has holes at both ends and can hold two incense sticks at a time. This burner can also hold 5 tealights, or you could add other decorative items as well.
A complimentary set of 6 incense sticks and 5 tealights will be included with this piece.
How Pallet Wood Tealight & Incense Burner 01 was made
These are cut from pallet wood planks that have first been de-nailed and sanded. Following this we “round over” the edges and cut the groove down the middle then drill the holes for the incense sticks.
Next step is to burn the Tealight & Incense Burners with a torch until the surface is blistered, much like Crocodile skin to look at.
Then we brush the charred wood off with an abrasive wheel. With a very coarse brush we are able to dig out the softer wood which effectively raises the natural grain.
Finally the Tealight & Incense Burners are dyed with a water based wood stain and then polished using Liberon Black Bison wax.
Note: those made from harder woods do not have as deeper grain as those made from softer woods, but both have a natural beauty of their own. All are put through the process described above,
