Lilac Lamp #4: steambending box

04-16-2007 02:53 AM by scottb | 7 comments »

Been so caught up in my boxmaking, I figured I’d better get this box built, so I can go onto the next step when I”m ready… This will be the “steam chamber” to let me stretch the legs a bit. Just needs the doors, a rack, and some steam (lots of steam).

Lilac Lamp #3: Tripod all in a twist

Judging by the amount of wood i still had to go through, I’d have likely killed another dremel in the process!

Apart from the wood on the surface, this is some nice, hard wood, and was putting up quite a fight, so this is the progress so far. The Dremel was starting to heat up, and I think I’ll need ...

Lilac Lamp #1: Finding some legs to stand on.

02-05-2007 06:20 AM by scottb | 4 comments »

Quick update after such a long (long) break from this project. As previously blogged elsewhere, the lamp will indeed be made from a single piece of lilac with the lower portion divided into three legs straddling a stone. Took months of on-and-off pondering, and some brainstorming, but now, having worked out the next few challenging steps, I can put the “lamp back on!” Today I took my Dremel to the cracks and splits on one end (after finally deciding which end was up) and...
