Heirloom Jim,

Thanks for the comment!
Had some scrap lumber lying around.
Built two lamps and will eventually use all that scrap to build 3 or 4 more.
Each one brings new construction and assembly ideas.

Nice. I guess this is a form of indirect lighting I haven’t seen before. Good idea.

The basic idea of the lamp comes from Frank Lloyd Wright’s Lamp, I saw
at Running Water Lodge in Pa. Very gifted architect ahead of his time.
Other Lumberjocks have aided me.
I made some personal variations on the original lamp.
