I made a floor lamp and 2 table lamps to match the sofa I posted in October. These were based on plans from Woodstore.net. I modified them to get the height LOML wanted. The plans were pretty good in that they described the processes well and didn’t contain any errors that I could find. The wood used is qswo and the columns are veneered on two sides to have the rays on all 4 sides although a lot is hidden by the corbels. The frames for the shades were a bit of a challenge since they are half lap joints in 1/4” stock, but eventually I figured out how to clamp the wood in place to get a consistent 1/8” lap. I cut the mica for the floor lamp shade with the TS. Be certain to wear a respirator and eye protection in addition to hearing protection. In retrospect, I think the column for the floor lamp is a little too thick; it is 3” square and I now think 2.75” would have looked better. I will try to answer any questions and thanks for looking.
