We made this lamp using the limb of a fallen tree found on the property we used to live on in the White Mountains of Northern Arizona. There was a lot of Cedar and Juniper on the property, so it’s either one of those. The knots, crevices, and twists and turns in the wood give it a natural beauty. The lamp shades we purchased from a seller on Ebay. The finished product represents hours of sanding and cleaning the crevices with chisels and gouges. The wood is then brought to life with multiple coats of a polyurethane varnish/boiled linseed oil mixture.

Dimensions: 8” at the base x 24” overall heighth

Shade dimensions: 14” at the base, 5” at the top and 10” tall
