That’s a very interesting design.

Halogen bulbs put out a lot of heat. Are you concerned about a risk of fire with the halogen bulb so close to wood?

Very cool design. The wooden parts look almost missionary in design, but then the light fixture looks very modern, like something from The Jetsons. I love the look of knotty pine.
