If plan A fails, go to plan B

This is a precis of what happened over about a 2 week period… A while ago I came up with what I thought was an interesting design for a lamp base.I was in Lisbon a few weeks ago, and ran across some hand-made paper.Ah ha – fate!I did some sketches, messed about with some bits of wood, did some drawings, and set to.For some reason best known to someone else, I decided to start with the top bit first.It being based on interlocking struts, I prepared some oak strips, cut them to l...

Building Falling Waters Lamps #1: Like Frank Sinatra, I'll Do It My Way...

05-04-2011 02:54 AM by HerbC | 2 comments »

Once upon a time, long ago and far away, I wanted to be an architect. (Of course the fact that I couldn’t draw sort of doomed that career path.) One of the architects who inspired me the most at that time was Frank Lloyd Wright. Perhaps the most widely known and recognized building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright was a home named Falling Waters. Not only did he design the home he designed the furnishings. One of the items he designed for the home was a bedroom lamp. Fellow LJ Randy...

First fit for the base and limb

01-20-2011 07:42 AM 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

01-11-2011 05:46 AM 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

06-12-2010 07:42 PM 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

09-12-2009 08:24 PM 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

09-08-2009 09:11 PM 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...
