This is a bit of a prototype…. still working to refine it a bit.

Martini glass meets table. 60’s retro infused with modern Craftsman.
Perfect mood lighting between two lounge chairs with a landing pad for the glasses.

Bent laminated Padauk, solid Amarillo hardwood and Shoji Waterfall paper with a hand rubbed oil finish.
74” Tall, 25” Wide (shade), 21” Diameter (table).

really really cool design. I love the lines. I’m not a big fan of the whole table/lamp joining thing (just not my style – not saying its bad work, cause is AWESOME work) I would like to see the table part out, and have the bottom of the lamp resemble the top…just without the lamp part at the base. Very awesome though. Well thought out, and the wood choice/colors is amazing! thanks for posting

Awesome design. How do you deal with the tripping hazard of the cord. Is the lamp battery powered?

-- Happy woodworking!

What you don’t see in this photo is the rod (nickel finish) that runs up the center of this lamp. The wire runs through it of course. Standard floor lamp layout.
