All of my altars are 100% handmade from scratch.
It has a saw tooth hanger on the back so it can either be set on a table or hung from a wall.
It also has a small hole drilled into the base of the shelf so you can place a tealight candle on it.
On the face of the altar I have used a wood burning tool to engrave the wood with the Valknut.
It is finished with a beautiful black ebony stain.
The valknut (coined from Old Norse valr, "slain warriors" and knut, "knot") is a symbol consisting of three interlocked triangles. It appears on a variety of objects from the archaeological record of the ancient Germanic peoples. The compound noun valknut is from the modern era. The term used for the symbol during its historical employment is unknown.
Scholars have proposed a variety of explanations for the symbol, sometimes associating it with the god Odin, and it has been compared to the three-horned symbol found on the 9th-century Snoldelev Stone, with which it may be related. The valknut receives sporadic use in modern popular culture and is again associated with Germanic paganism by way of its modern-day revival, Heathenry.
