This is a light I made after seeing a picture in Ken Burton’s book “Crafting Wooden Lamps”. I used lot’s of techniques that were new to me and lots of different wood. Curved lamination for the arm, segmented turning for the shade and an ebony push button. I used spalted maple and purple heart for the base, and maple,ebony, bloodwood and ebiara for the shade. If I had one thing to do over it would be to make the maple base a little larger. It was larger at one time, but I chipped out a chunk on the lathe and had to make it smaller.
