This is a chandelier I finished recently. I built this to match the customers decor. There is a 1/2” threaded rod in the center tube allowing the entire chandelier to rotate a move up and down 3 feet. Attach the custom crank to thee bottom decretive cap and swing away. This took 4 weeks to build, all hand made from cold rolled flat bar and DOM tube. I painted in flatblack with a few coatss of flat clear..

I used a bit of blood wood and walnut so I thought you guys wouldn’t mind me posting this here…

Jason, this is a gorgeous chandlier. You combined the wood and metal beautifully to create a custom piece that adds a unique look to the home.

Nice job.

That’s unbelievably nice. I hope the mother-in-law never sees this.

I heard once that a cleaning lady was dusting a very expensive crystal chandelier on a ladder by spinning it. It eventually unscrewed itself from the ceiling of the foyer and crashed several feet onto the tile floor below. I like your solution much better.

Beautiful, not something you see everyday, that’s for sure.
