I got this Craftsman Style floor Lamp commission at Christmas from a good friends wife as a surprise birthday present for him.
It will reside in Nashville after today. It is made from locally harvested Qt. Sawn White Oak and I used Mica for the shade .
A friend and I built 3 different sleds and jigs to fine tune the details on this lamp and I think the time and attention to detail shows at the end.
2 Dye stains was used to achieve the deep color and finished with clear shellac .
The Edison bulbs give it a great warm light.
The Light sockets are made of machined Bronze and are superior to any big box store stuff.
With a cloth twist cord to supply current .
It was a true joy to build and figure out the fine details of building this Lamp.
One of the photos shows a smaller table version I build last year. Thanks ORD ….
