a couple of stain glass lamp shades that I made that the guy at the glass store said couldn’t be done. Made both table lamps & standing lamps. Made a few for friends for their homes. Kinda a fun project.

The guy at the glass store had never heard of anybody making a shade out of wood, always metal & leading. The wood is oak & the panels are stained glass.

This is very special. I never have thought of what could be done with woodworking and stained glass before now. Thanks.
