Oil lamp made from granadillo. This is the first project that I detailed the bottom and figured out quickly that the tools needed to be sharpened to finish it. Finish is 4 coats of tung oil sanded with 0000 steel wool in between coats.

Nice!! Does the oil go in the wood as the only container? Where did you get the glass top?
