I love turning Applewood, because of its color, & beauty.
It’s also great for fine details. The Redwood lampshades color blended well with the Apple.
I Used a small split keyring with pop-rivet wires flattened, & inserted in the split then soldered.
After trimming to the proper length, I epoxied it into the shade.
I used at seven watt bulb in the fixture. The lamp gives a soft soothing light.
The diameter of the shade is three inches, & the total height of the lamp is nine inches.
A hand rubbed oil finish.
