Made from repurposed cut-offs from various furniture projects, the smart and zany Firestarter, is a perfect way to keep your matches at hand. Making a unique single candle stick, the idea for the item came about as a way to recycle the scraps and utilize waste from Peg Woodworking's shop practice.
"Because of this the wood species and patterns change based on what I am currently working on. They are all made from various hardwoods and finished in a satin danish oil."
- Kate Casey, founder and principal, Peg Woodworking
Use them to light your fire place, your Hanukkah Menorah, or as a double duty candle stick.
The species used in this particular batch are various combinations of red oak, white oak, ash, wenge, walnut, maple, mahogany and zebra wood. Each one arrives to us wrapped - and will to you as well. The match books' cover slide into grooves cut into the wood block, and are easily replaceable. An extra book of matches is provided with each Firestarter as is one tied grouping of matches.
Each one is slightly different. Approximate dimensions for each one are L4"xW1.5"xH3".
