Handcrafted Cherry Wood Celtic Palm Size Lucet

Dave hand crafted this lucet out of Cherry wood. It is 4 inches long by 2 inches wide. The copper embellishment is inset (not glued on surface) and he has burn etched the celtic design by hand.

This smaller lucet is just right for small hands and finer cord braiding. A Lucet fork is an ancient tool dating back to the Viking era. It is used for braiding cord. Lucet cord can be used for draw-string such as for bags or purses, decorative edging, and any other use where strong cord is needed. You can find more on the internet about lucets and how to use one, including photos.

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