« Part 4: Sanding is complete. Ready to run cord and patch holes Part 5 of Juniper Table Lamp w/ "double base" series no next part

We finally finished this lamp on Wednesday and i spent all day yesterday taking pictures and getting our website updated. It took almost 2 hours to get this lamp patched and the holes blended. In this last batch of lamps we have 9 new lamps and would have had them finished on Tuesday but, it was real cold out so we built a fire in the shop, well the wind was blowing so hard that it was making the flames come out the door, then it started to smoke and man the shop was filled with smoke and some falling soot. So we poored water on the fire am got the air circulating and called it a day off.

Anyway here is the finished product

Juniper Log Table Lamp

This is a beautiful lamp! How do you strip all that fibrous juniper bark off without going crazy? Do you have a special tool or process?

Hahaha, well when we first started this business, we had no idea how to get the bark off so we sat here with screw drivers and peeled away. Needless to say, this did not work. After some research we found out that a pressure washer is the only way to go, we bought a new nozzle that shoots in a figure 8 pattern and it peels it off with ease.

Thank you for the series. I have learned a great deal about these lamps. I appreciate the ability and effort that go into the creation of these lamps.

Very well done.
