Or was that popular?

The base elements of this lamp design are made from various thickness pieces of poplar, painted black.

I didn’t have any poplar so I went to Home Depot and bought a board (3/4” x5 1/2” x 8’).

I decided to resaw the poplar rather than buy the different thicknesses at the Home Depot.

Again I used my table saw and the resaw fence I built. Here’s a picture of the stock ready for planing to final thickness.

From left to right, not counting the piece of 2×4 that’s 1/2”, 3/8” and two 1/4” pieces.

Hopefully I’ll get all the parts planed to final thicknesses early this week. I’ll have to go by my friends house to do it since he borrowed his planer back…

Thanks for looking in and remember…

Some friends just can’t be trusted to leave their tools with you! Keep going.

Kenn,

Yeah, he had only left it here for a little over two months…

Of course after using it for the initial purpose that has prompted him to bring it over (planing some cypress that’s going to be new flooring for our front porch…) it just sat here gathering dust until I started this project, then he says he’s got to have it back…

Well, this will give me an excuse to visit him and see the improvements he’s made to his shop.

Thanks for commenting and remember…

Be Careful!
