Kinetic AND Lantern Event 

This American Chestnut is from a dairy barn built in Tazewell VA in the early 1900s. This piece is "Rustic"! There are many wormy holes and nail holes when the nails were pulled from the boards. Talk about history and character in a piece - this has it. You will also notice lighter and darker colors on the frame. This indicates the board facing inside or outside of the barn. This is our Slender design in Extinct Wormy Chestnut with Walnut trim. The Slender design named itself with its graceful slender lines. American Chestnut became extinct due to a blight brought in from the Chinese Chestnut tree. The only way to find American Chestnut now is from old barns/buildings taken down. Click on the picture to zoom in and see the grain up close. We are John & Laurie and we begin our creations searching for the most amazing hardwoods then handcraft each unique piece. To reveal the natural colors and character in the hardwood we use clear gloss lacquer. There is nothing quite like the natural beauty in American Chestnut. This beautiful wooden work-of-art has the added feature of being illuminated with candles or led lighting. Our Handmade Rustic Wood Centerpiece Lantern adds beauty to living room decor. It is also a beautiful finishing touch to any room when displayed on a table or hanging from the ceiling or off a wall with our wall mount bracket. NOTE: A tea light candle is included with the lantern. The larger battery candle with 5 hour timer is an additional $8.00 and can be added to your purchase at the bottom of the listing page or in accessories.

John has many years of woodworking experience and I have a degree in Computer Information Systems with a focus in Website Development and launched my website design business April 2004. In April 2012 we combined our talents and launched Woodsmith of Naples and began selling our handcrafted works-of-art.John Smith.

It has been very exciting since our initial launch. We have shipped our products all over the United States, Canada, Ireland, and Italy. We also attend many fine art and craft shows in Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, New York, Michigan, and now Alabama.

  • We hand select beautiful exotic and hard to find domestic hardwoods with natural rich colors.
  • We hand cut, shape, sand, and finish each piece with 7 coats of clear lacquer to reveal the natural color and characteristic of each hardwood - no stain is used on our exotic and hard to find domestic hardwoods.
  • All Centerpieces can be used either on a Tabletop or Hanging from a ceiling or wall.
  • Many lighting options - candlelight (tea light or votive), battery candles, LED lights.
