Small Stressed Centerpiece Buoy


Handmade Maine cedar lobster pot buoy. Comes in three color combinations:

Patriotic Colors: Red, White, and Blue

Coast Guard Colors: White, Orange, and Navy Blue

Maine Lobsterman's Colors: White, Newport Green, and Red

The centerpiece itself is 8 inches with a 100% leather strap nailed on top. The centerpiece is a total length of 9 inches.  Each buoy measures between 4½ and 5 inches wide at the butt. There is no tail on the centerpieces like on the buoys.  Therefore, you can place your centerpiece on any flat surface – deck, mantle, steps or railing. Each centerpiece is painted with 2 coats an oil based enamel paint for durability. All centerpieces are painted by hand so the lines will not be perfectly straight. This also helps makes them unique and personal. These centerpieces are then “banged up” to make them looked used.

Each centerpiece starts out as a cedar log.  It is then cut into “blanks” and allowed to dry, if necessary.  It is then shaped.    It is then sanded smooth and painted with white primer, sanded again and then painted with its final colors. No two centerpieces are ever the same.  It depends on the size and shape of the cedar log. Some may be skinnier and some may be fatter. 

Since the centerpieces are a natural wood product, some cracking may occur. There is no way to determine when and/or if your centerpiece will crack.  There is no way to prevent this from happening.  Any cracks will add character to your centerpiece and make it unique.

A supply of these centerpieces is kept on hand at all times so should be able to ship within 1 to 3 business days.
