Lots of time spent in the making of these lamps. My wife needed new lamps to go with her new Greene and Greene end tables and coffee table. So we talked and I did a rough draft of one and then she took my design and had me taper in the legs and angle them on the stand. We hid the cord in one of the legs so no need of a post up the middle. The lamps are made totally of gummy cherry with Wenge pegs and accents on the corners.

The lamp shades are made of gummy cherry that is 1/32 of an inch. They were cut on a bandsaw and then run through a drum sander. Sprayed with clear shellac for the finish.

Dimensions are 28” high with the shade on it . The base is 9” sq. and the overall shade dimension at the widest is 18” square.
