This is The Heidi Lamp. I’ve been admiring all the wonderful lamps posted here on Lumberjocks and had to try and make one too. I built this Lamp for my cousin Heidi’s birthday. I made the center portion using box joints, which were cut with my stack dado blade on the table saw. The biggest challenge with this lamp was the pull chain. In order to have the chain hang free from the lamps base, I used a screen door wheel as a pulley. I mortised this pulley into the back of the lamp under the shade. This wheel worked great and makes turning the lamp on and off smooth and easy. I used red oak with Minwax Walnut stain and Polyurethane.
