I really like that. I have just the place for a lamp like that one. Thanks for sharing!

Well done. Thanks for sharing with us. I’m looking forward to seeing more of your projects. Are you mainly a turner or more of a generalist?

Wayne,

I guess I’m a generalist, since I had to sell my woodlathe a few years ago. The shop I have now is too small for any more machines, so I don’t know if I’ll ever be so blessed as to own one again. I really enjoyed it while I had it though.

Yes, I had guessed you were a generalist after I saw a few posts. Any thoughts to a mini lathe?

I was just perusing your projects, Tom. I really like this lamp. I’m disappointed to read that you don’t have room for your lathe. You do beautiful work. That’s a tragedy! Get another one. You obviously are meant to be turning!

Thanks a lot, Tom.

I do hope to have a larger shop someday. And, if I can get a larger shop, I will get a lathe, because they are just FUN! I know that you like yours a lot – and are a good turner too.

This lamp was probably one of the most “original” projects I’ve ever made, since I had no plan or anything particular that I copied it from.

Thanks for looking ;^D

Tom,

What a beautiful lamp and the shade is wonderful. Where did you get the kit for the shade??

Max,

When I lived in Pennsylvania, there was a crafts store called “American Handicrafters” (which I don’t believe is in buisiness any longer). I bought the kid there for the leaded glass shade. It came with the glass precut. You had to cut the leaded material to size and then solder all of it together. It was not hard to do.

Because the shade was so heavy, I had to come up with a “substantial” base, and so this design kind of evolved as I went along.

Thanks for the kind words and thanks for looking.

Tom,

Glad I found this in Pulse. That is a great lamp. You do need to get back to turning. Maybe you could rent time on someone else’s lathe. I’ve got two and you’re welcome to use them for free, any time.

Tom,

Thank you, Thank you! I appreciate the compliment. I really do hope that I’ll be able to have one again. Turning is therapeutic in my opinion – it’s “good for what ails you.”

I’d love to come over and use one or yours. I saw the view you’ve got at your place and that would be more than therapeutic in itself!
