I built twelve of these desk lamps for christmas this year. I got the idea from one of my woodworking magazines except it was a floor size lamp. I also add a detail to the top using a 3/8” bead bit and a 3/4” box core bit. A 1/8” round over bit was used to add detail to the pannel edge of each rail. The pannels are 1/8” lexan with ouilted maple veneer laminated to them with epoxy. The tops and bodies were sprayed seperately with laquer and asssembled a few days later. I had a hard time getting my camera to take a good picture with the light on but trust me it looks better in person. Hope all you jocks enjoy!
