My Original design lamp,

Once again out of Ash and Sapelle ,Firstly I modified the dimmer switch and worked out how I was going to attach it to the plumbing stop cock faucet. Basically a bit of filing and some good old fashioned Araldite glue. The dimmer is an on off switch dimmer. Clicks on and off which is nice.

Kind of fiddly getting it all together. For maintenance purposes I used threaded road bolted through to the base to hold it all together.I glued some locating blocks on the underside of the lid so it fits snug into the body. I was debating whether or not to attach the little feet, the Mrs won on this and it seems to set it off nicely. Once again I showed off the end grain which I like. I finished it with three coats of High Gloss wipe on poly. I picked up here on one of the forums to apply my wipe on poly using coffee filter bags which are lint free. Works great.

I am calling it an original design however it was inspired by these two lumberjocks projects, the links below.

Thanks for reading,

Anthony – wood choice is great and she was right about the feet, they make a big difference. I really like the faucet handle operating the dimmer switch.
Three trades involved – electric, wood, plumbing and all displayed very well

Good work there for sure. Agree with the feet decision.

A couple of questions:-
Where do the M&Ms come out .. tee hee

Where did you get that humungous lamp from?
What voltage does it work on?

Hi Rob
No M and Ms unfortunately,

At first I bought some real funky globes in the US, dim able LED vintage type globes , In my jet lagged state I forgot that they where of course 110 Volt for the US market.(they have now been sent to the Philippines)

The one I have in the lamp now I actually got from Big W in Balina Australia. 240 Volt dim able.

Thanks for the comment

Thanks Dick, yes mate I never thought of it as in the three trades in one lamp.
With regards to the wood choice ,Actually I seem to build everything out of the Ash and Sapelle, I,m not exactly spoilt for wood species choice here in Hong Kong. But I make do.

Thanks and always good to get your comments.

Regards
Anthony
