    Default How do you make a wood wick?

    I know that wood wicks are patented, but I would like to make one just for my own understanding and for fun. I promise I will be really careful. Does anyone out there know how to make their own wood wicks??

    never heard of them before.
    It seems to me that it would have to be a softer porous wood, and a thin strip. That way the wax will wick up keeping the wood from all burning down.

    The "Wood Wick" name is patented. Using wood as a
    wick isn't.

    They are fantastic candles IMO. But it isn't just the
    wood wick that makes them great. Their wax is slow
    burning.

    I bought another brand with a wood wick "Natural
    Timber Wick" and it was no where near the quality
    of "Wood Wick" .

    As to where to get the wick material....... not sure.
    But is looks like a hardwood for sure. Like hickory..
