Handmade American Cherry Wood Cameo Lucet

Dave hand crafted this cord making lucet out of American Cherry and inlayed it with a "Girl with Bird" vintage inspired resin cameo. It is 2 inches wide by 4 inches long.

Dating back to the Viking era, this little hand tool was used for braiding cord that was then used in a variety of fabrics and garments.

This lucet has been initialed and dated by Dave and is currently up for auction on Ebay.
