A new trinket box…

I’m always looking for new combination possibilites and came across this new combination of 3 items for a trinket box.

The new trinket box is… our 2-1/2″ tall wood candlestick holder.  It has a deep 1-1/2″ hole, much deeper than our other candlesticks which usually stops at 1″ deep or so. This makes it useful as a trinket box while other candlesticks has no room.

I noted this depth then looked for something that would work as a lid.  Turns out the 1″ round bean pot candle cup worked very well… if placed upside down into the larger candlestick holder’s hole. It already has a hole in the bottom and a handle was needed.  Our wood tie peg happened to fit this hole perfectly!  So that’s three items you can combine to make a new trinket box!  Glue is the only thing needed plus paint or whatever you like to decorate it.

Here’s a picture of the combination.

The new trinket box!  Three items combines to make this.  The items are: #146, #3002, and #120.  Works very well.

I was surprised on how well that little candle cup worked as a lid.  Other handles are possible but drilling out the small candle cup bottom hole is necessary for these different handles.  I will post pictures of these later in the future.

This would work best with really tiny stuff – less than 7/8″ or so.  Or for spices, salt, etc.   The space is only about 7/8″ x 7/8″, circular.  A 7/8″ wood ball fits in the space perfect with almost no rattling with the lid in place.
