I acquired some scrap oak flooring and needed to replace a faulty lamp. By gluing mitered strips together, I got to have QSWO ray flecks on all sides of the post. I might make a Stickley inspired shade someday but the compound angles involved are giving me a headache right now.

Looks great! I like your take on the A&C style for this lamp. I built a loosely A&C lamp ( ), but if I build another, I just might copy your design. Like you, the lamp shade is a desire, but I’m happy with the one I chose for now, which incidentally looks like the same one you have. Great work!

Great work. You can always make a new shade later, when you’ve forgotten about the headaches the base gave you! LOL

Great lamp, I love the figure in the wood.
You really did a bang up job on this one!
Keep ‘em coming.
