Just goofing around with an led strip light.
It’s made of African mahogany, I think next time I’ll increase the width of the slot to accommodate 2 strips for better light.

I think that’s pretty neat looking.

I like the design. along with adding two strips on the next one you should run the wires up the middle piece.

Nice lamp! Where did you get your LED strip?

Nice looking lamp. I would second Tomakazi’s suggestion of running the wires up the middle piece and out the base. Is the base or middle piece wide enough to hide the switch?

Thanks. You are right. That’s one thing that bugs me about the design is the wire.
I’d have to reverse engineer the wire and connectors to allow me to hide it.

It’s a nice project and I like the look. My only suggestion would be for you to run the cord down the back of the column and through the base and out the back of the base through a groove perhaps. The dangling cord would then be somewhat hidden. It’s very nice.

I like it!
+1 to the suggestion to run the cords up the middle out of sight.

Nice work, I have been trying to come up with a design for a few lamps like this as well. I made two out of mason jars for outside wrapping the LED strips around a piece of PVC and putting the mason jar over the top. So far working well.
