this walnut lamp has GREAT GRAIN PATTERN with the sap included..most people prefer not to work with the sap portion of walnut, but I look for it to produce the above pattern..I’ve added some black inlay at the neck to give it a little “BAM”!!!! thanks for looking and comments…can blog how this is done for the curious..remember, this is done on a ringmaster which cuts rings at various angles, I glue them up and sand and shape by hand to get the above finished product…this was done from one board 9” wide

Marshall, this is a beautiful lamp. I know a number of woodworkers would cut out the sapwood but I really enjoy the contrast it gives, especially in walnut and cherry. The inlay adds a nice detail to the project as well.

Thanks for sharing this.

It looks great. I bet there is quite a bit of
work involved in making these.
The finish is also nice.
