Hello

I want to preserve my eyes !!

So I decided to make two lamps to put on the two sides of my TV

I use padduck and beech

I like the result and you ???
Woodturning is really an addiction !!!
Comments welcome
Thanks for looking

Nice looking lamps Jacque. The shades look especially tricky to turn, oui?

When I was a kid we had a HALO light around the TV screen.

Great looking lamps Jack. They sure embellish the room. Bo doubt turning is an addiction.
By the way, who wont the game (foot or soccer ) that night ?
Congrats !

Serge

Hello

Thanks to all for your kind words
To ralbuck : Thanks
To Greg48 : I turn all the pieces one by one and after I glue them ( padduck is glued on beech after turning steps for the leg)
To Zagreb : Thanks . New lathe is a project …..
For more turning : I have the ideas but the time ….
To Hunter71 : The blue is dangerous for the eyes. So Imade these lamps to have a better contrast betwwen the TV and the lamp. Before the contrast was between the TV and the dakness of the room
To Carles : Yes very pratical!!
To Serge : I dislike foot or soccer ; I took the picture on a channel with a lot of blue !!! But Lyon win the match against Roma

Thanks
