l put this together a year ago , the body and lamp frame is made from TEAK . The glass l used was a purple ,blue , white and red wavey flow of colours it also reveals a certain amount of Texture . l also added a strip of ebony to meet a medallion of saple on all four sides. The medallions are done up using chatter tool on the edge and a spiral tool starting from the middle out to the chattered edge, just to add a little spice to the piece. l had some trouble with the angles on the shade until l chatted with another Lumberjock, he sent me a PDF File and l was off to the races thanks to my fellow Lumberjock who’s name l can’t remember. Thanks to him and my lamp was a success . Thanks!!!!
