I dyed the Juniper floor lamp and put it on a Mt. Mahogany base. The two Bitterbrush lamps are set on dyed Juniper bases and the Juniper table lamps are both set on a piece of old growth Juniper.

Very nice lamps. I like the one with the arm-branch the best. You are lucky to find such material available to you. Not much like that in the city.

Very nice lamps. It must have been interesting running the electric through that first lamp.

It is getting very hard to get ahold of old growth Juniper anymore and when you do you use every bit possible. The back side of this piece was actually mostly rotted out so it only left me about 1/2-1” to drill through which made it quite the challenge. I got within about 2” of having just one drill hole but, due to the angles my drill bits just don’t like to turn corners so it took another 3 holes to go the last 2”. Oh well,


Have your say...
