You never know what you’ll find in those nasty old boards until you look real hard.
This is a Table Lamp variant reproduction of a 1908 Frank Lloyd Wright designed Print Stand.
It is made from oak and finished in linseed oil, ebonized butyl with carbon black, and a varnish mixture.
The light is the new style LED and casts a beautiful white glow.
The difficult parts included making the shade from a flat piece of Acrylic. It was sanded opaque and it had to be mitered, making the rectangular cube glue up tricky.
The wiring in hidden in a recess created in the frame.
And attaching the separate pieces in the middle to fit the space provided just right took a long time.
It had to be assembled like a puzzle.
It was a fun project to make, especially coaxing it from the pallet wood I began with.
I hope you like it.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
(Here are some of the process shots.)
