Turned Wooden Pincushion

Turned Wooden Pincushion
£12.00 1 Available
Love this


This hand turned pincushion is made from a nice piece of repurposed Teak, lacquered and then wax polished to give a soft sheen. The polish will deepen and improve with time. It's about 90 mm in diameter and 65 mm tall including the cushion. A pretty piece of fabric with a stylised floral design is formed over a plug of polystyrene and a soft Kapok top to make the pin cushion itself. Lovely!


I've been making and selling these since 1980 and I love making them. I enjoy selecting the fabric and they always look so bright and cheery. If they are made from hardwood it will be repurposed wood and if pine from a FSC controlled source. This one is made from a lovely piece of old teak. It's amazing the beauty you can find in these pieces of timber.
