I made this for my wife, against her request…so I guess it is for myself. This is a translucent veneer lamp with a body made out of solid, figured, black walnut. Design created as I went. The veneer is birdseye maple stabilized with fiberglass and epoxy. One lower board has two knots that I also added birdseye veneer to the back, although you don’t get a sense in the pics of the translucency. Feet and top made out of maple. For lighting I used dimmable CREE LED puck lights. Grain filled with rotten stone during finishing. French Polish although I haven’t yet buffed. The lamp is 5 feet tall, 11 inches wide. The model is my beautiful daughter.
Walnut from the Wood Rack, Branford, CT….a great small business for those in the area.
