This was a two day project my son and I did for his wife. The bottom is Brazilian Cherry, left over from another project, and the rest is White Oak, also from the scrap pile. Real easy to do and a makes a pretty neat lamp. I got the plan off of a free plan website.

The second photo is what the finished product looks like with the well bucket and lamp shade.

I like the offset arm with the socket. Nice design! What is the URL of the free website? When you say “free,” you are singing my song!

There’s gotta be a whole lot of good in someone that finds uses for “scraps” (if there is such a thing)! Nice work.

Knothead, here’s where I found these lamps: http://www.thewoodcrafter.net/proj/p60.php

The enlarged plan came out to be actual size when I printed it on my printer.

We changed a few things from the original plan. Like drilling a 1/4” dia. hole through the Lamp support for the electrical cord instead of a dado up the outside. We made the base square rather than round. And a few other minor changes.

Please excuse the mess on the kitchen table and the poor photography.
