Ok, Not sure why pics are rotating when I am uploading them, but they all seem to want to go the same way no matter which way i have them rotated. That being said…
Here is the first lamp that I have completed It started as a nice Beech log and turned very nicely. Everything was great when I too it off the lathe… then I started drilling it. I will be practicing more with doing that, the drill was doing well until it went awry and came out the top side. I was able to save it by cutting off some of the top and then drilling a hole that was more centered in the top and feeding my lamp cord up and filling the off center hole with woodfiller.
The stand was made with some pieces of Ash I had around the shop and the parts for the light came from the big orange store. I mentioned to my wife I was thinking about turning a lamp fro our bedroom and she picked out the shade, it works well with it.
