My second craftsman style lamp. Wispy orange colors to match our living room. These lamps are fun to build as they combine stained glass with woodwork. Made from QSWO and cut glass. Finished with a yellow dye and Watco dark walnut stain. I know its a strange combination but it really makes the ray flecks stand out in the quarter sawn white oak. One thing I need to change on this lamp is a taller harp to raise the shade up about three inches. The harp I had was only an 8 inch one and with this shade it is just a bit too low. Thanks for looking and any comments or critiques are welcome.

That’s really cool. Did you do the stained glass yourself (and if so, how does that work?) or did you order it?

Thanks and yes, I did the stained glass myself. Pretty easy, especially since it’s all straight lines. See http://lumberjocks.com/projects/135314 for some comments working with glass. It’s another similar lamp that I completed a couple of weeks ago.

I like both of these lamps that you’ve done!

Great looking lamp—I love that stained glass!

Yeah, I think a 10” harp would work better. You shouldn’t have any trouble finding one.
