DIY Incense Holder

DIY Incense Holder @themerrythoughtI love burning incense in my house and for Christmas this year I got a pretty solid stock of Juniper Ridge Campfire Incense. I have an old incense holder that I don’t like leaving out on my shelf because it’s pretty hideous so I always forget about my incense. I decided to make an incense holder  that’s simple and pretty enough to leave out and I’m sure I’ll be burning through my incense collection pretty quickly now!DIY Incense Holder @themerrythoughtWhat you need:
-Wood (I used 1/2″ thick maple and leftover hem-fir from the Mountain Necklace Display)
-Sandpaper or Belt Sander
-Drill or Drill Press
-Wood Glue

How to make it:
-Cut bottom piece 10.5″ x 1.5″.
-Cut top piece 3″ x 2 3/8″ x 1.5″ then cut the front at an angle.
-Measure to center on top piece and drill a 3/4″ hole most of the way through. (This is to hold extra incense.)
-Along the angled side, drill a thin hole about 1″ into the wood at an angle. (Which will allow the incense to tip upwards.)
-Sand pieces. Round edges if desired.
-Apply glue to the long side of the top piece, press at the end of the bottom board, and clamp in place until dry.

    Thanks for sharing this idea. My wife loves to have incense burning. But, we haven’t found a holder that we like. We may have to make a couple of these.ReplyCancel
