Lighting is always a fun subject and the prevalence of these “antique” bulbs has made it even more fun. This is a square lamp made of Makore with a 5” spherical bulb. It is on a dimmer so you can set it super low to just see the filament lighting up.

Wow I like it. Even the twited cable look amazing ! The Makore is beautifull, looks like mahogany or sapele. Can you share what finish you used ?

Thank you! I used about 3 coats of rubbed on/rubbed off polyurethane and a coat of Renaissance wax applied with 0000 steal wool.

So cool antic styla lamp stand. I wonder where did you find that old lamp or old looking lamp.
