The Making of a Miniature Lobster Buoy

1" scale dollhouse - 2" in length

A carved and sanded block of Balsa wood and a length of thin dowel is the beginning of my
miniature lobster buoy....

Painted as the real ones are with colors, when bobbing in the ocean, signify the owner of those
particular buoys and the traps they are attached to......
....and if they're not yours - DON'T TOUCH THEM !!!
After painting them, sanding my buoys again slightly will create a worn and weathered look,
then also dipped in stain to add the rustic realism.

  1. Having grown up on the Massachusetts Atlantic coast, your reproductions are wonderfully accurate and must be a labor of love !
