I had long ago wanted to make Greene and Greene wall sconces for my house and one as the birthday gift for my daughter. As the base for this project I used article WWJ April 2001 and Joe McGlynn project http://lumberjocks.com/projects/90440 and his beautiful blog.
Yesterday I wanted to post my blog, but I can not to use my photos wich I posted on Photobucket. May be I make this blog later. I had decided to start project in May 2017, as a result I made six sconces for my house and one for my daughter. Additionally all sconses contain cord switchs. One sconse contain connector for power cable. I had to remember Tiffany technic and my old project ” Greene and Greene ceiling lamp” http://lumberjocks.com/projects/80088 and stained glass working. I used sapele, ebony, stained glass Spectrum. Finishing Varathane Red mahagony wood stain, oil .
