Here’s another table lamp, this one of the “accent” persuasion. There are two art-glass panels, both held together with an intricate frame of African mahogany, wenge and Hawaiian Koa. The black-lacquered posts are cut from Mahogany, which I use because it is stable enough to use for these long, slender pieces and not have to worry about them warping or twisting later on. This is especially important in a lamp like this one where the wiring has to run up inside channels in the posts, plus the cross-pieces are cut through the posts, too.
The piece stands about 42” tall and uses two single-tube, 24” fluorescent fixtures for the lighting.
Another labor of love, for sure! Hey, if anybody ever has a “how did you do that?” about any of these projects, just ask!
