Once it is dry, each piece of wood is carefully selected to create beautiful and unique planks and cutting boards.
In the Spring of 2017, roommates Andrew Winker and Dan Moore looked at their last year of college and wanted to do something that would be memorable, fun, and help them do more than watch Netflix on the couch. The solution came in an unlikely form: Candles. Dan had always been a man of many hobbies, and in the fall of 2016 he began making candles. Andrew had always been a dreamer and thought that candles could be more than a hobby. Dandles Candles strives to make fun scents that capture the Aggie Spirit and smell really good at the same time. All “Dandles” are hand crafted with a wood wick and made by Aggies in College Station, Texas.
