It’s good to be back online with a computer instead of a tablet! I’ve built up a backlog of projects to post too…
I started this sometime last year, I think, but it’s been on and off between other things. One of the other guys had made a long table, and these were offcuts from the skirt. I dug them out of his scrapheap (with permission, of course) and put them aside. (Actually, come to think of it, most of my personal projects have been made from his scrapheap.)
The basic shape comes from a design on Pinterest ascribed to Charles Eames, although further research says he never designed lamps. But that’s where the tripod idea came from. From there it was just lots of work with spokeshaves, planes, rasps, chisels, files and old sanding belts.

Thanks for looking!
