A buddy of mine spotted the original inspiration for these in a Toronto market. He took a pic and said hey you could do these right? The pic was of a lamp mounted in a single, thick board. The finish was nice but I’m a woodworker before I’m a lamp maker so I knew Id want to let my inner box whisperer out for the boxes/bases.
The large lamps are white oak finished with a walnut danish oil. The sides are but jointed with old iron square nails. The on/off switch is a toggle switch on top. The bases are 9×5x4.
The smaller lamps are either purple heart and maple or lacewood, mahogany and maple. The joinery is 3/16” box joints. They are 9×3x3 and have a pull chain in the front for the switch.
Replacement bulbs are easy to find at HD or most hardware stores.
Thanks for looking, all comments are welcome.
Big special thanks to my long time buddy Tim L’Esperence for the photography.
