I made an Arts and Crafts style lamp for my wife for Christmas. It’s based on the Lamp that WOOD magazine offers, but I didn’t have the plans so what you see is my interpretation of WOOD’s design. Building the shade was a challenge, but I’m glad I took the time to do it right – the results were worth the effort.
I cobbled together the light hardware from various parts – the base of an old brass candle holder, a brass plumbing tee, a part of from a brass air line coupler, etc. I wanted a really old look to the fixture.
I attached Buffalo nickels for the cord pulls. We’re from Buffalo, NY and my wife likes all things Buffalo.
