oops.. after the computer problem—I have lots the password that I used for Rick’s LumberJocks account..

Although it is hunting season right now, he has managed to find time to make two more mini oil lamps.
The wood for these is Grey Elm. It is a BEAUTIFUL wood. I love it! Rick says that it turns nicely as well.
He stained one lamp (not sure which stain) and just the bottom of the other, leaving the “lamp shade” natural.

Well, he should be proud of those Ms Debbie. They appear to be mighty fine and surely seem to have been made with care.

oh now that I look again—he stained the bottom of the one lightly with the red stain and left the top natural, so it looks like a red lamp with a glass lamp shade.

They both are great.. The stained one is like a few of Joe’s creations.
