I made this light using Ken Burton’s book “Crafting Wooden Lamps”. The woods are bloodwood, and cocobolo. I ordered the glass corner block online and painted the design with glass paint. I cut some copper pipe and used ammonia for a patina to match the paint.

You did a fantastic job with it for sure. Both of those woods are some of my very favorite to work with.

Great looking lamp—I really like the Art Deco design of it! I, too, would like to see it lit up!
