    Lamp #4

    This is the fourth lamp in the series. The body is shop cut elm veneers over a poplar core, the base is elm as well as the lamp shade frame. Great fun projects.

    That is some beautiful work.


    How did you join the lamp shade frame?

    Terrific! The lamp/box I designed for "my" project this year got waylaid by life but more specifically, because I cannot find what I need for the lighting! Until I resolve the issue I cannot commence. I'm delighted to see what you are doing.
