Here’s the lamp I made a couple of months ago. It’s from a dogwood tree that’s in my front yard. I basically used a long auger bit and drilled a hole through the center of the log and ran the wire through. The dogwood log is roughly 19” tall and 6” in diameter. I used wood stabilizer on it while drying to minimize checking.
The lamp kit was purchased from Home Depot and the shade is from Target. It has a very rustic feel to it, and consequently my wife hated the lamp, which was fine with me because I was really on the fence about it. For her bday I built a different table lamp (soon to be posted).
