This rather large lamp (30” tall) is inspired by the Arts & Crafts Style, Prairie Style, Greene & Greene,
Rennie McIntosh, and FLW. The base is mostly Padouk with some tiger maple. The shade is white oak
and the stem is mostly tiger maple with a small amount of black walnut and cherry. It has two sockets
and a switch on the bottom of the stem.

That’s really beautiful. How did you do that shade. It looks translucent.

Now that is really nice.
Lots of neat stuff too, like the bevel miter half laps (?), and the mortised dowel joints.

I like it,

Another great piece, H. I’m with Steve on the joints for the shade… those are impressive! An interesting blend of styles as well.
