The Machined Wood Burner is an incense burner without the stigmatization or affiliation with any “spirituality” or “religions,” instead it is machined neutral and can be used by anyone for any purpose, but we suggest incense burning.

The burner is made from 3 separate and distinct machined parts, which slide, connect and interlock with one another to form a resolved puzzle. The incense stick is secured in a sliding block and the ash collects in a groove. When the incense stick turns to ash, simply slide the box along the groove to dispose of the remains.
