Very nice, doesn’t look like a lamp until its on. The plugs are a nice touch.

Nice work man! I’m a big fan of the Greene&Greene style. Gives me an idea, a design like that would look real nice as an end table or something (with some changes of course), which you could light from within just like your lamp… create some interesting ambient lighting effects.

A very attractive lamp, all the way around.

The “design modification” on the other lamp is OK, because that makes both of them one-of-a-kind.

I’ve wanted to try the veneer on Lexan for a while now, but haven’t gotten around to it. How thick is this veneer?
