OK so this project had started off as something else beside this lamp but the tubafore was not cooperating.
I had started by cutting a section of the 2×4 and hand planing one face and side nice and flat and then ran it through my planer. After doing that I had re-sawed and glued up to make panels for a box. Upon gluing up the panel twisted. So we opted for plan b.
I had another idea for a lamp and decided to execute it free form since I knew that this board was twisted. I just let the wood dictate how the build would go and this is what I came up with on the fly.
The 1st two pictures are of the finished lamp with a candle in it. Pic 3 is being painted. Pic 4 is the plastic sheets before being colored. Pic 5 is gluing up and pic 6 is the tubafore off the shelf.
This was a great challenge and was not as easy as one would think.
