Each Holder is one of a kind, made by nature never to be duplicated. The Holder does not have any finishing oils on its surface. It is completely natural. The last picture in this set of pictures is of a different holder that has mineral oil applied to its surface. This is to show you what the surface of this holder would look like if you added mineral oil on its surface. It darkens the wood and brings out the grain colors. Its easy to do if you choose in the future.
This holder was made from a piece of old cedar log I found in the woods surrounding our home in Georgia. I have left the outside surface and shape as I found the log laying on the forest floor with the exception of cutting off some branches. Then cleaning the surface to reveal the beautiful colors of the old cedar. The ends, or length of the piece, have been saw cut to length and sanded smooth.
You are buying the holder shown in this set of pictures with all the imperfections that come standard with old dry cedar. Cracks, flaws and rough natural surfaces can be seen in the photographs. As these old pieces of cedar age they often develop even more cracks. So with all of this in mind..........don't buy it if you want perfection. Buy it because nature made it for you to enjoy as it ages. The holder will change color with time.
This Essential oil holder is designed to hold 3 bottles. The diameter of the holes are 1 3/16 ". The bottle holes are approximately 1/2"" deep. Frequently I receive the question: "Will my (particular brand of oil) bottles fit in this holder?" My response is measure the diameter of your bottles to see if they will fit. My standard hole diameter is 1 3/16". If you need a different size hole follow the directions below for a custom order. It does not cost you any extra for me to meet your needs.
Essential oil bottles and background items not included with holder.
I can't guarantee natures work. I can only assure you that when I am working with the wood all the skill and ability I have will go into what nature has provided me. My craftsmanship is in every piece I make.

Why such a hard line policy?
The wood I am using to make each item (this does not apply to Bread slicing guides since they are made of new material) has been laying on the forest floor for many years. It has been subjected to insects, rain, wood decay and green moss. Then baked in the Georgia heat and humidity.
So.......the finished item can and may have cracks, bug holes, wood decay, nicks, marks, green moss and be discolored due to its exposure to nature over the years.
That is why....each wood item I make is so unique and one of a kind. They are different!! That is why you are buying it!!
I cant guarantee natures work. I can only assure you that when I am working on the wood all the skill and ability I have will go into what nature has provided me. My craftsmanship is in every piece I make by hand in my wood working shop located in Lincolnton, Georgia.
What happens after the piece is done in the mystery wood shop will be a mystery to all.
