I have been wanting to change out the light over my dinning table for some time. I could not find a fixture I liked so I built one! The top curved piece is gummy cherry with the bottom part made out of maple. I constructed the pagoda tops for the pendant lights out of the gummy cherry to add to the oriental flair. I finished everything with a coat of boiled linseed oil and three coats of shellac. Thanks for looking.
