Here are some pics of my first lamp which is made from Sapele and Maple. The lamp is approximately 18” tall and the base is approximately 6” wide. I picked up the lamp shade from Lowes and I think it compliments the lamp pretty well. However, I’m not too excited about the beads that are hanging down but my wife and I think that we will learn to love them over time.

Thanks! I think my daughter Addison really helps make the lamp look that much more special. She brings out the beauty in the lamp… that’s my girl! :)

If anyone would like the plans to make this lamp, please let me know and I will scan and email them to you. I got these plan from Wood Magazine sometime in 2012!
