Asian / Greene & Greene combination Accent Table Lamp.
Reclaimed oak, with laminated acrylic colored panels.
More detailed hand work with this project and that was fun.

It takes longer to make projects out of this old discarded oak, but I get more satisfaction from it after I’m done.
My budget, and the environment like it too.

The finish is Tung Oil and wax.

(Please excuse the picture quality. Some big dummy left his camera in his pocket when he shop pants went through the laundry. So these are from the phone…..doh!)

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

That’s a really nice lamp you have there, where did you get the acrylic panels? and I think you need a few more spring clamps.

Love G & G and the reclaimed oak is always nice to see. The design and craftsmanship are great.

Nice work.

Nice going. I bet you had a lot of fun on this lamp.

I think I’ll go downstairs and look for my watch in the washer.
I need to find some old oak and a whole bunch of talent.
I am glad you shared. Thank you.

Nice lamp and I really like your wild clamp collection. What is that handle on the right side of your workbench for?

People would never believe that this lamp came from that wood! You need to attach a pic of the ‘parent’ material to the base. Nice work.

Do that some more.

Don’t do that.
