More firewood saved from the fire. Used Brazilian Cherry and Quartersawn oak and an old lap shade to create this little accent lamp.

“Brilliant” – pun intended!

Really nice use of the 2 woods and I love the design, kind of an Oriental look.

Thanks for the post,

Beautiful lamp and nicely crafted. I love the shade material too. It reminds me of the homemade paper my son was making as a little hobby many years ago.
