Y’know those Himalayan salt lamps that are not only popular, but also are purported to have healing/restorative qualities? Most of the ones I’ve seen are just the rock salt without a stand. As usual, my thoughts went almost immediately to how they might be “enhanced”. This is just one result (have two more in the formative stages, as well).
These stands can be adapted to virtually anything one might want from a crystal ball to a nautical prism (both shown in the photos below).
The stand is cottonwood stained dark mahogany, and has a hole bored all the way through to accommodate the lamp wire. It also has a circle recessed into the top to accommodate the lamp, itself, and to keep it more stable than it would be just standing on a shelf, countertop, or even a fireplace mantel. While I used a circle jig I made myself to rout out the recess in this one, scribing shapes and then freehand routing the recesses is also a possibility I’ll be trying in the not too distant future, as well.
Thanks for looking.
