Project Information

I came across this funky wood box, or something…

The original boxy thing had the diamond shapes already out of the three sides and doors, and I added all the exotic wood parts.

To me it already had a look like an antique lantern, though there was no evidence it was used as such, hmm, maybe an LED candle perhaps.

If it wasn't for the cute little bubble on top of the door I might have left in in the 'another day' bin, and so it got a second chance at having a second chance, lol.

So a lantern it became, though since it would never hold a candle, I did hide a super cool flashlight/lighter in the core as a juxtaposed treasure.

I wish I could just show you how it all works guys, alas, the collectors of these pieces don't like all of the secrets exposed, you know how it is, if I tell ya, then I gotta take out the witnesses, lol

Create a super day guys!

Pretty cool. If there any videos on how these work? I'm guessing since the buyers don't like the secrets given away that you make them up instead of using plans?

Great build and excellent repurposing of the original box.
I like the groove you are on.
