This lamp was made on the Legacy mill. The top and bottom is Asian Elm, the outside spiral is Florida rose wood, the inside spiral is Red eucalyptus. This project was sprayed with pre cat lacquer. The spiral is about 18” long. Let me know what you think.

-- Have a great day.

That’s one fantastic creation with the spiral in a spiral. Beautiful. I’d like to see the build process, most intriguing.

Same as OT – how awesome is that lamp! I have an idea that’s somewhat similar in mind but more like barbed wire… not sure I have the skills quiet yet for it though :) Beautiful finish!

rhybeka, If you have the passion to do it you will figure out how to do it as you go along. Just give it a try, you might surprise yourself. Just remember THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. I would love to see what you come up with.

-- Have a great day.
