The base on this replica butter churn is right at 1 inch on the bottom and gets narrow at the top...1/2 inch. The inside is hollowed out for the moving parts that make the butter. The lid was custom fitted at the top and a hole was drilled in the center for the long push rod and the mixer which is at the bottom of the rod. The mixer has holes drilled through it so that it mixes the butter just like a real butter churn. The rod can be pulled up and down just like a real butter churn. I copied the plans for a life size churn from the web and scaled it down to 1/12 for a dollhouse. This piece would look great in your kitchen or on the front porch for decoration. This butter churn is very detailed. The black rings are just painted....maybe next time I might try real metal rings. :-)
