Okay here is one of the most tedious parts of this lamp. Here are pictures of how the lamp limb looked before we started shaping it to the base.
There are several types of scribing tools available, but we have not been able to find one that works for us. To start the process, we find the point where the limb is the higest from the base. This is our starting point for the line that we draw to start shaping. We use a pencil compass for our scribing lines. The line has to stay level / perpendicular to the top of the base and the space between your pencil and point on the base needs to stay consistent.
How to scribe a base:
3. Maybe a few swear words
4. Sanding & grinding
5. Draw more lines.
6. Sand some more
7. A few head scratches and lloks of confusion
8. More lines
9. More sandinb
10. repeat steps 7 – 9 until you reach the desired look.
