This is wooden version of traditional Croatian souvenir called ’’LICITARI’’ , which was usualy made of some kind of baked and later coloured dough. I was ordered to make them of wood.
So, they were made of oak, cut on bandsaw, dimensions 8×8cm, 3cm thick. I grooved latters and other lines with my Proxxon, sprayed them red and additionaly coloured lines and letters to white with toothpick. Finish spray laquer.
I srewed metal ring on the top for line.
