Sweedish Candle Stools

Below are some photos of us burning sweedish candles with the intention of turning them into stools. If you’ve not heard of a Sweedish candle, it involves slicing a log length ways a few times. This creates a nice hole in the centre of the log you can squeeze some firelighters into. When you light them they make some really beautiful, contained and long lasting fires. We controlled the burning so they didn’t burn to feircely, so we could turn them into stools.

Once we finished burning we cleaned them off with a jet washer, sanded them down and oiled the outside. We should have just made 2 or 3 but instead, for some reason we made around 10 and after spending hours finishing them had no idea where to put them all!


I kept a small one for a plant stool in the bathroom.
