I guess ya know your from ME when you ask your wife what she wants for Christmas and she tells you “a new lobstah pot”.

We use it as an end table between Adirondack chairs around our fire pit.

Got 15 years out of the last one before it rotted to pieces.

For those interested in the function of the design… there is a “kitchen” and a “parlor”. With hole sizes determined by fishery regs.

Love it! We are doing ham and duck for Christmas dinner, but now I wouldn’t mind some seafood.

Great to see a lobster pot for sea food… rather than a lobster pot wallet for money… I know of many wallets that have never released their prey!

That’s cool Matt. Will your new one eventually suffer the same fate or will this one be under roof.
