I had been looking for a modern small lamp and after I saw LJ member Pashley’s LED lamp and watching the video I new it would fit in with my cabinetry and furniture.

I made mine using Teak for the walls and African Ebony Gaboon for the top and bottom. I held the strips of wood in place during gluing with composite brads instead of metal to save my saw blade.

The profile for the top and bottom is created using a Roman Ogee router bit.

The bottom is attached with screws while the top is held in place with locating dowel pins and hot melt glue. The finish is low sheen Tung Oil. Miniature round felt dots were used on the lamp bottom to protect the counter top.

Thanks again to LJ member Pashley.

Nice accent lighting! Iv’e been intrigued by these lamps ever since I first started seeming various versions on LJs

Composite brads? Never knew they existed. Now they are replacing cheap pot-metal brads with plastic, it’s the 80’s all over again 8^)
