This is a unique combination of storage box and holder for incense sticks, made from a solid chunk of reclaimed red oak. Inside, there’s plenty of room for a couple dozen incense sticks which are easily accessed by means of a sliding lid made of highly figured black walnut.
But wait – this box does double duty! There’s a cleverly hidden hole in the back of the box for setting up incense sticks to burn. And when the lid is slid back into place, there’s an ash trough carved right down the middle of it to keep things neat.
But wait – there’s still more! (Haha!) When the lid is slid aaallll the way back, one will discover a spot deep in the back of the box to hide whatever somebody may hold dear (a silver dollar, a piece of candy, whatever!).
It’s all been planed and sanded down very flat and very smooth, and the lid slides smoothly in the carved slots in the box. I’ve provided a finger depression to make it easier to get at those combustibles, too. The box and lid have been finished with a mixture of mineral oil with beeswax and carnauba wax for an organic look and highly polished feel.
This incense box (and several others) are available through my online shop (www.smilemoon.etsy.com). Thank you for checking it out!
