This is a replica of the Frank Lloyd Fallingwater bedside lamp, inspired by LJ Randy Price plans http://modernhomage.blogspot.com/2011/04/fallingwater-lamp.html.

It is not 100% finished in two senses:
1. there is still no finish on it (only BLO to pop the grain) – I am still contemplating what finish to put and how. I would say that gloss poly is probably the best for this, but wiping on all these corners seems like a royal pain.
2. finding here lamp hardware is not trivial – the light source is LED lantern :-)

the “shade” is made of recycled Rimu door frame, all the other stuff is black walnut.

It’s the perfect replica of a replica!

Just a suggestion for lighting hardware – seems ridiculous I know but you can find a whole lamp for the price of a tiny piece of the hardware – try The Warehouse or the Super Shed recycling centre or get it for free ( like I did once) from the rubbish bin of a lamp store ( though since then, they’ve moved their rubbish bins out of public’s reach). Maybe go in and ask for any damaged stock and buy the whole lamp that they would otherwise be binning.

I still think an LED strip would work well in this light. You can get inexpensive strips from DX, just need a 12v dc source.
