This is a unique candlestick holder that I designed. In the base, is a difficult-to-find drawer that allows the owner to store anything from matches to money. No thief would ever think to look for valuables in a candle.
1 -The cocobolo base has been cut, mitered and glued into a 8 section ‘octagon’ that attempts to keep the grain continuous. For this job I did not want a round cut from one piece of lumber. I like to accent cocobolo grain wherever possible.
2 -The thin spindle that holds a candle. or flower, or incense, can be removed for easy transfer.
3 -The drawer was cut after the base was created. The cut has been covered at the bottom by a cocobolo cap piece and felt.
4 -The drawer can be lined or lined depending on use. This secret drawer can be used for coins, a special piece of jewelry. matches, paper money, meds, short cigarettes, etc, etc.
