« Part 3: Drilling holes for the cord Part 4 of Juniper Table Lamp w/ "double base" series Part 5: It is finished »

Well this lamp is almost done. Tomorrow we will mount the lamps to the bases, run the cords and Tim will patch the lamps. I have not yet got my learning on how to do this. I have the basics down but havent tried it. He has pretty much mastered it so I will let him keep on with this task. We will have 10 lamps finished this weekend and next week we will start on a floor lamp and end table. These are custom orders that need to go out. I think I will blog about them as well.

Anyway here is the lamp all ready to be finished. It is a bit dusty but it is going to really pop when we spray the finish. In the last picture you can see the grooves that I was talking about, you dont want to drill through one of these when trying to run a cord.

Hi Candy,

I am still following this. The lamp is looking pretty good at this stage. Is it screwed to the base?

No, this lamp is not yet bolted to the base, we will bolt it down today and patch the holes.

Yes this wood does seem to have a life of its own
