This project is a Frank Lloyd Wright design seen in many of his houses. In most of the pictures
the shades are under the boxes but I decided to put them on top. I used three kinds of wood,
mahogany for the base and stem, cherry for the boxes, and tiger maple for the shades.

Good job!

Ever since I saw this lamp design at Taliesin I have been planning to make a replica. You beat me to it.

Can you comment on how you wired it? I had always planned to use a transformer and low voltage lamps. It does not look like you did that. Did you run a single line up the shaft and wire each lamp in parallel or did you run a separate line for each lamp?

FYI – I’ve seen table top versions with 3 lamps and floor versions with 10 lamps. I’d never seen 5 lamps before.

I really like the mix of woods and the nice warm light that throws out. What did you use for lights? LEDs?

I toured FLW’s studio in Oak Park and saw their versions of these. Yours looks very nice. Great Job!

Awesome! I’ve been wanting to build this one for some years now. Got the plans by John Loeffelholz off amazon a while back. You are quite the Frank Lloyd Wright fan I see.
