An elaborate codpiece, intricately carved by hand from local poplar wood in our shop in Downeast Maine. Finished with oil paint (including gold on the ridge), hand-hammered copper hardware, and strings made from braided locally spun wool

This very silly and potentially functional protective garment brought us much giggling and joy during its creation. Created for the color-loving historical reenactor in your life.

We created this codpiece using traditional handtools from a solid piece of poplar from our wooded land in Ellsworth, ME. The armor-esque surface of the codpiece has been elaborately chipcarved and finished with non-toxic oil paints, including shimmery gold on the ridge. The oustide contrasts with the delicate and subdued handcarved texture on the inside, which has been painted a dark sepia. We made the copper hardware by hand, and braided natural undyed wool to create the straps.
This codpiece is completely one-of-a-kind unique and non-replicable.
7" long by 4" wide by 2 3/4" deep overall. The straps have been made to accomodate approximate sizes from 11" to 28" inseam and up to a 41" waist, although larger side straps can be added if need be.
