You can read about how this lamp came to be like this in this blog. As usual – you’re not likely to learn much there, but there may be the odd interesting snippet.
I usually do my wood work in broad brush strokes. Someone on here recently described it as “chunky style”.
For me this project marks a radical departure, although I think it’s still fairly obvious that it’s a KnickKnack creation – the angles, the interlocking – all somewhat mathematical.
This was a lot of fun – I surprised myself by not rushing – and the project surprised me by actually fitting together like it was supposed to with only the lightest of card scrapering in the odd place.
Fumed oak, ash, lightly cherry stained beech. Linseed oil finish.
It’s 29cm tall by 23cm square (11 1/2 ” x 9” square)
As always – feel free to comment – praise is good – suggestions for how it might have been differently made, or better designed also welcomed.
