Since last Christmas we have been mostly been working on custom orders, there hasn’t been much of a chance to build our inventory or do something that truly inspires us.
We had a brief reprieve of custom orders and Tim was able to make this floor lamp. It is two separate pieces.
The top piece was found in an old elk hunting camp, we believe it was part of their firewood pile, thank goodness they didnt burn it. We have had this piece for quite a long time and never could figure out what to do with it.
Well, Tim wanted to make a floor lamp, so then we had to find the right base. The base that this is setting on, was in a old shed that was piled with odds and ends of wood that we have. We thought this piece was pine because it is so light in color and is full of bug holes like pine gets. Any way, once we started sanding, we knew it wasn’t pine.
Lets just say that these twp pieces have found their mate and have made a beautiful, stunning floor lamp.
It measures 49.5” tall and 58.5” tall with the shade. The base is 30”x20”
It was finished with polycrylic. We really wanted to tung oil the lamp, but was not sure how to get the oil way down in the grooves and wiped back up again.
