So this lampshade comes home a coupla years ago and my wife asks: “Can you make me a floor lamp out of this? Oh yeah, make it art deco, and try to incorporate elements of the Chrysler building.”
Huh. Really? I think, draw, and toss many ideas. Finally, I decided on the tapered square column you see here. The height of each of the sections was arrived at through trial and error drawings (CAD programs are quite useful to the designer/builder woodworker :) ) reviewed by SWMBO. The column and base are birch and the accents are walnut.
Each section sockets into the one below… was an interesting project. I don’t know how art deco it is but I think it turned out pretty well.
