this bloodwood lamp was done on a ringmaster, which cuts rings at various angles, I glue them up and sand and shape by hand…one can really play with the grain to get some incredible patterns…this lamp is hard to photograph, but the grain pattern is incredible..since it is so dense, it finishes like a dream…thanks for looking & comments welcome

Marshall -

Nicely done! Absolutely beautiful.

Any chance of posing a future blog on using the ringmaster. Looks very interesting.

I have never had enough bloodwood for such a large project, but I have used it for pens, it is one of the most beautiful woods you can find.
great looking lamp!!!
it makes me want to dust off my ringmaster now.
