This item was designed by us and laser cut out of birch wood in our home studio in Nashville.
It comes flat packed as a kit that you put together yourself. Assembly required!
WHAT TO EXPECT
• This Nest Lantern ships flat-packed, unassembled, and ready to get your inner child excited.
• After unpacking and following the assembly instructions found on our website. You will put your new creation to the test. Light it up, dim the room, and be mesmerized!
• If you are giving this as a gift WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND you let the recipient enjoy the assembling process. They will love you for the experience you're giving them!
• It measures about 7 inches high.
• The outer rings expand about 13 inches round.
• The inner light glass box compartment is about 4 inches square.
JAR CANDLE ONLY (*not included)
• ONLY use fire contained within a non-flammable source on the inside. (something that will not burn down to the wood or melt on it and catch fire!)
• Be cautious, especially with children around. This item has some pointy parts.
• Although other candles may work in this unit, always practice safety around an open flame.
This lantern can be used indoors, or outside, as well. You'll want to protect the raw wood with a protective weather coating to keep it looking good in the elements. A spray Clear-Coat works well for keeping the natural grain tones.

• Kit comes in it's own crate, with all the punch cards you need to complete the kit.
• 4 Glass Panels to create the fire box, shielding the flame from wind.
• Hanging wire harness to suspend the finished kit, if you choose
• LED Battery powered string light kit, with remote. (OPTIONAL)
LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY:
• This kit should take approximately 30-60 minutes to build completely.
• Medium level - Challenge, larger pieces, often repeating design.
I really love these puzzles! My son bought a wonderful gift for me, the Craftsman bird feeder. The kit was thin wood and the parts were laser cut with incredible precision. The parts were easily separated from the wood sheet with very little waste. The parts were snapped in place and I put a drop of glue on the joints to make it permanent. I then cut a small hole in the bottom and installed a flickering candle bulb inside of the feeder. It was so beautiful I immediately ordered the Japanese pagoda and the mid-century lantern. They were easily put together and look great with the flickering candle bulbs. I loved these projects so much I bought Japanese pagoda for every one in my family! My next project will be the cathedral lamp!
