Well it has been awhile since my last post but here’s a gigantic Lamp I made from the scraps bin!
(I do apologise for the poor pictures) it is 6 ft tall and totally self supporting, There is no centreline and it balances entirely on the bottom rail! the base is a macrocarpa round I saved from becoming firewood and the individual rails are a mixture of….Mac,Pine,Saligna,Totara,Kauri,Rimu,Ash,elm,and Cedar with white and amber L.e.d lights for a nice uplighting effect and finished off with 3 coats of oil. I think it looks quite nice in the corner!

-- knots and cracks are a good thing if you let them be!

Lamp or sculpture? I think it is both, nicely done!

I hope you don’t have cats, that is one stairway to heaven.

This is quite a nice project and is a great eye catcher. Nice work!
