Believe it or not, I dreamed about this lamp before I made it. So, I went to the stock of wood my son and I have from some pallets we salvaged and poof! There it is.
The power cord came from an old vacuum cleaner, the light element came from a lamp we discarded a while ago. The switch was one I bought for something else, but never used.
I think the wood is Birch based on the grain pattern and the density, but I’m not totally sure.
Used MinWax Natural finish and a brush on lacquer (two coats sanded in between).
I think I’ll be making more small lamps in the near future since I had to dig out the parts I had tucked away. :)
