Announcement   I am focused on creating unique artwork with my wood creations and with my candles to fit what you need. I enjoy creating custom pieces or candles, and can work with you if you have a project in mind. Just send me a message to discuss the project and to see if I can meet your needs.

All of our wood items are 100% handcrafted by me using wood grown in the United States, unless otherwise stated. I do not use manufacturing teams to mass produce my work. When possible I use American made hardware such as brass cups for the candles and other materials.

All antler items listed (including Pens) listed are made from deer antlers from sheds only.

In the case of wood or antler items the picture shown is the actual item for sale unless otherwise stated.

Candles are purchased as blanks then imprinted by hand with the image of your choice. I show the one I made to advertise what they look like but will custom make yours.

I usually ship via USPS Priority Mail and will provide a tracking number when I ship the item.

Perfect item for a baptism gift where you want to provide something practical for the day, as well as with some sentimental value. My sister in law teared up when she opened it on behalf of her child, who was being baptized. Philip was easy to work with and very accommodating and processing the order quickly and getting it in the mail in time for the celebration. I would definitely purchase this item again for a similar occasion.

I was able to fix my midi lathe, so I am able to continue making the Irish Unity Candle Holder Sets. They were what I first started selling on Etsy and were designed from the set I made for my wedding.

About

Unique and personal wood art and candles

My wife and I had attempted to find the custom design we wanted for our wedding and nothing fit. I created our Unity Candle and the holder with all the care, style, and love for our future together. I continue to put the same attention into all of my work I create. I enjoy making custom items and will happily discuss any project you have in mind. Please message me to see what I can do for you.

I believe in creating unique and personal items. I stand behind everything I make and if someone isn't happy with it I will strive to resolve it as quickly as I can.

I have expanded what I sell within the shop but I will continue to keep Unity Candles and the Irish Unity Candle holder sets listed. Most of my pieces are wood turning, sign carving, and scroll saw work, however I also do other wood works as well. I have the standard customized candles, but have created many customized candles using pictures or a unique design request. As with any artistic endeavor that works with a natural material, my skill and my vision keep growing and adapting the more I understand and experience. I promise to continue to put all my skills into your project as well.

    My wife and I couldn't find the right Unity Candles or Holders for our wedding, so I made them myself to fit our wedding and honor our life together. I am focused on creating all my work with the same care and love that I put into those.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

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 instructions

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. All of my candles come in plastic bags that can also be used in storage.

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.

Sizing details

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.

Wholesale availability

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.

Handmade

I hand make all of the wood items in my shop. I personally embed 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.

Shipping

I usually ship only USPS Priority Mail or First Class. 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.
