no previous part Part 1 of Burled Juniper Log Floor Lamp series Part 2: Ready to drill holes »

Well, we were invited to be a part of an “By Invitation Only” showroom. It is called Rocky Mountain Design center, located in Evergreen Colorado right of I-70. This is a 25,000sg ft showroom which features all high end lodge type home furnishing, from all of the U.S as well as Tibet, India and Europe. Needless to say this is suppose to be some of the best of the best and we are so thrilled to be a part of it.

Anyway we will be renting a 400sq ft space to feature our work, the hard part for us is that we have only 3 weeks until the soft opening and not 1 single item in inventory. So this floor lamp that we are starting on will be one of the pieces featured in this space and we wanted to share it with you.

It has been cut down to size, and will sit on a burled cottonwood base, the burl on the juniper is going ot be fabulous once this piece is finished.

It has been sandblasted and all the rough edges smoothed out. The next step is the sanding which I started on yesterday. So here soon we will have more pictures.

If you notice the “person” drawn on the shop door, well this is my 5 year old target for practicing dodge ball, this is not our sales person, hahahaha

I love this lamp… and hope to have it sanded so we can drill the holes for the cord and then I can work on the base
