This pillar version of the Unity Candle set was inspired by the traditional Irish Wedding Goblet and is larger then the other sets. The center candle stem and its captured rings are created from a single piece of wood. The upper cap and lower base are each created from the same piece of wood with the grain going perpendicular to the stem for added strength. The rings around the stem are turned in place and unbroken, to symbolize unbroken love and of two being a part of a greater whole.

The candle holders are made from repurposed poplar, giving it an almost white appearance yet still retaining the natural grain of the wood. The wood is treated with a shellac finish to seal the grain for long life. The entire set was sanded to a completely smooth finish then treated to give it a textured feel and a satin look. All the candle holders are easy to care for with any wax furniture polish. The natural imperfections give each a unique look and add character but are treated to increase the strength.

The center candle holder will hold a standard pillar candle up to 3 inches in diameter. The side candle holders each have a brass ring to allow for better positioning of the standard sized taper candles.
The candle holders use candles that are easily obtained from almost anywhere they sell pillar candles and taper candles.

Designed for use as the Unity Candles, at the reception table, for anniversaries, and / or just as a wedding gift.

The center holder is approximate 9 inches in height without a candle. While the side holders are approximately 3.5 inches tall.

Frequently asked questions about DesignsbyPhilip

Many of my items are completely customizable. I can alter my candles, signs, or scroll saw products to specifications you would give me. Convo me at anytime and I will respond to discuss the project. Though this might take additional time to accomplish. The wood items shown are already made so are ready to be packaged to ship.
Care with the candles is the same as with any candle. Place them out of direct sunlight. If storing them place them in a dark dry cool location.

Care for the wood projects is easy. To clean just wipe them down with furniture polish or a damp towel. Do not submerge them in water.
I add the height, width, and depth of all my projects to the description. If you have a specific question or if the description is missing the size details please convo me.
Some of my items are available in bulk orders, however all of my items are handmade and therefore will differ in appearance slightly. Please contact me to discuss what you might need.
I hand make all of the wood items in my shop. I personally imbed the images in the candles. While I do use a computer to design the items and power tools to make them I do not use CNC machines or manufacturing facilities. Handcrafted items are the only items I will sell. I perfer the slight and subtle differences that make the items unique.
I currently ship only USPS Priority Mail. Some of the bigger projects I am working on may require shipping UPS or Fed Ex in the future. If that in the case it will be mentioned in the description.
