I went to your website and found it interesting. I am confused tho..as an owner of a legacy mill, and some rasps & sandpaper, I could achieve this. It would be no picnic, but i’m bettin’ it could be done on that equipment & today with all the cnc around, I’d bet you could make it that way too. You might look into it, so you could make these again from wood.
none the less, this is quite interesting & thanks for sharing your journey.

That is probably the coolest looking lamp I have ever seen, really nice.

Went to your site, and if you are crazy, I am glad to be crazy also. There are many of us here who have to,
for some weird reason, attempt to do something that is not quite possible for us. It does keep me out of
trouble and off street corners, so my beautiful lady and family put up with me. With modern tooling, the
spiral lamp would be easier, but you mentioned drilling the hole through the spirals, and that, for me sounds
impossible. Thank you for sharing your work, and making me think about a few more improbable things.
I wish you success in your efforts, and if nothing else, keep having fun in your shop, whether it be with
wood, metal or ceramics.

Outstanding lamp. I couldn’t tell here, but when I looked at your site and saw that you are running the chords through holes in the spirals my jaw lost it’s battle with gravity.
I would really like to see that in work.

fellow woodworkers.I appreciate your interest, If you are interested in seeing more you can go to this website.(https://picasaweb.google.com/108996239474408506806). I am glad some of you took the time to acknowledge my work, there are those that do not believe it is possible. The time I have put into it was rewarded,but not profitable,( I do what I do.) By the way, I will be 78 next month, I haven’t given up yet. If anyone lives in the Hendersonville North Carolina area, and has a CNC machine, I would like to spend a few minutes with it, to be able to analyze its capabilities.my background is, construction, welding, ceramics, design engineering, machinist,and a few other things I care not to go into.—all things possible with patience and tenacity

That is a fantastic piece and I imagine quite difficult to produce. Kudos on an excellent job.

Beautiful craftsmanship. What the mind can conceive the hand can achieve, at least that is true in your case!

These look great! I am also scratching my head as to the holes drilled through the spirals. Job well done!
