First fit for the base and limb

1316 days ago by junipercanyon | 0 comments »

This lamp project is going to be great. Lots of twist and character. Drilling the hole for the cord is going to be a chore, but I am ready for the challenge.

Same sticks for both lamps

1325 days ago by junipercanyon | 0 comments »

These two lamps are as close to identical as twisted juniper lamps can be. They are cut from the same limb for both the post and the bases. They are about 18” tall and are looking really great. I cant wait to see these two complete. uni

Playroom #3: Lighting Retrofit

1537 days ago by clieb91 | 1 comment »

So as I previously posted in Let there be more light I added a lamp to my daughters playhouse. I had just used some liquid nail to attach it to the shelf. This did a good job of holding up for a few months until one of her friends decided to use the lamp pull cord as a swing. The lip around the lamp was not that large and the lamp fell. Luckily it fell into the loft and not the entire way to the floor. But a new holding mechanism was needed.. So here is the new way it works. I drilled ...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #8: Ammonia Fume Finish

1810 days ago by CaptainSkully | 8 comments »

Well, after three days in solitary, I decided to pop the the weasel. The different boards fumed to different tones, but I think with shellac and brown furniture wax, it’ll be just non-perfect enough for some charm. The wood putty had no tannins in it, so it’s almost white. Luckily, one corner is perfect, so that’ll be the one facing out. I tried my Dark Fumed Oak aniline dye, and it didn’t work on the putty either. I even brushed the liquid ammonia directly on...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #7: Fumearama

1814 days ago by CaptainSkully | 9 comments »

After letting the glue cure overnight, I took it out of the clamps and gave it a final hand sanding. Not too bad, but could be better. I think next time I’ll err on making the legs touch on the outside corners instead of a flat meeting. This caused some gappage that I filled with putty. Since our dog laid down by the tent, I figured it was time to fume. There’s no better time than the present. I carefully put the tent over the table and then propped them both up en...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #6: Final Glue Up & Finish

1815 days ago by CaptainSkully | 11 comments »

At the urging of my girlfriend, I fumed a small scrap of QSWO and then went over it with amber shellac and dark brown wax, buffing it out with 0000 steel wool. It’s pretty magnificent. As a result, I decided to give my Limbert table an “authentic” Stickley finish. While waiting for the glue to cook, I fashioned what can only be described as an impromptu fuming tent. Even one of my neighbors came over to see what monstrosity I was building, as they’re usually ...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #2: Glue Ups

1853 days ago by CaptainSkully | 1 comment »

Yesterday, I milled up four long, rough boards to 3/4”. The Robert Lang book uses thicker stock, but I had to get rid of the saw marks. I chopped them up a bit oversized to give me some leeway during the glue up. I arranged the boards for defects and grain to give me the best four sides out. I glued up one panel every two hours last night during dinner and a movie. This morning they’re all ready for the band saw. One thing I’ve noticed is that there seems to be a lot o...
