Shaker 4" Pincushion Base - Red Milk Paint Finish
Shaker Pincushion Base

Maker: LeHay's Shaker Boxes
Size: 4" Diameter x 1 1/2" H
Finish: Red Milk Paint
Create your own pincushion using this Shaker inspired base and your needlework design.
The side of the box is constructed from maple and the bottom board from quarter-sewn pine. Copper tacks secure both the band and the bottom board.
Tung oil is applied to help protect the finish. On painted and antiqued pieces the tacks are darkened to provide an aged appearance. Per tradition, the bottom of the painted pieces are left unpainted and are then dyed and oiled to provide an appearance of age.
