Tapered Candle Holders are some of the most common types of candle holders. Using a Wood Lathe and some fine sandpaper, our workshop created this one of a kind candle holder. Designed to hold tapered candles, this piece made from Hoop Pine makes a great addition to suit any room. We’ve used a Cedar Proof tint as the finish, but you can use any type of finish to suit your style.
