I have designed a candle box that has several benefits from the standard candle box. Most Appalachian candle boxes were simple, rectangular shaped with a sliding lid. These boxes would sit flat on a surface and require two hands to pick up. Usually they contained boxed joints or mitered corners. My design has elevated feet shaped sides which allow the user to lift and carry the box with one hand. Also, I have included a match holder inside the candle box.
The construction of this box can be done easily with hand tools or machinery. Joinery options make it easy to personalize the candle box which can be used for other applications in todays world.
