Default candle holders

I've started making candle holders out of exotic woods. I'm not sure what to use to finish them. I use lacquer and danish oil on my boxes, but these will have to deal with a little heat. Any and all suggestions are welcome.
Thanks
Kevin

Kevin, does your design use a metal or glass candle holder or cup?

Yes. The candle holder will have 4 holes drilled through the wood to hold glass votives.

You should be fine with the danish oil. The glass should insulate pretty well.
