My first attempt at wing nuts. They are actually a lot more fun than regular nuts.

what finish did you use on that plug? Isn’t that a fire hazard with the initial spark when you plug it in and the heat transfer after it’s been on for a while? I’ve always wanted to do something similar but been too afraid to burn down the house because of my obsession for wood

That plug is hollow inside to cover the remote control low voltage wall wart, which is plug into a real outlet .The oak base plate and plug are all one piece . I always use a watco danish oil with a little minwax clear gloss mixed in with it wipe on, wait, then wipe off. That thing is 24” high

I’m glad you explained about the size. I was trying to figure out if that was a regular wall plug inside of a doll house or what. Great look.
