This is a pair of lamps I made for my bedroom. The base, top and center insert are black walnut and the main stem is mahogany. I finished it with walnut oil. I find the walnut oil really brings out the grain and the color of these to woods!

the bonus is that they actually light up too! seeing as I’m not an electrician.

Nice lamps. How do you keep them attached to the wall so that they go sideways like that?…just kidding….:)

no trick to get it to stick to the wall, just need a lack of photography skills and a little laziness with photo editing
