Bench Dog Design is excited to introduce some of our newly crafted smaller-scale items including picture frames, candle holders, and mirror frames. Below is a sneak-peak at our tealight candle holders, available in 3 sizes. These lovely pieces are crafted from former joists from a house in the Mount Airy section of Philadelphia. The nail holes, that once attached wooden lath strips for plaster, are clearly visible in each piece. Knots, cracks, and other ‘imperfections’ add to the character of the pieces. Be sure to stop by our booth and check them out.
