Some times ago I bought old brass chandeliers and many spares for its. My wife asked to me to make two brass sconces , but I decided to make wooden base and four sconces with greene and greene accents. I saw beautiful and simple Gamble Houses greene and green sconces http://cdm15799.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/singleitem/collection/p15799coll61/id/748/rec/102 I decided to make four bases and four sconces , as well to add strap details . The detailed description of the making strap details contains in the Darrel Pearts book ” In the Greene and Greene style” (p.59-72)
http://www.furnituremaker.com/books.htm I used sapele and ebony plugs. Finishing is red mahagony gel stain, oil and beeswax.

A little late to the party, but well done! I’m curious how you wired it.
