A nearby gallery wanted me to create a table lamp with a vineyard scene, so here’s what came of the request. The wood (that shows) is all African mahogany. The stand is veneered (1/4” thick) for the grain match and the design relief was cut on my little 10” Rikon B/S with a 3/16” blade, and then sanded to finish with my (oh-I-love-this-machine) Ridgid spindle sander. I used a Porter-Cable Multi-Tool for the detail sanding in the tight inside corners. (“I have to write a review on it one of these daze.) The top case is all made from resawn 5/4 stock (resawn to 5/16” thick on my terrific Craftsman 14” B/S with a 1/2” Wood Slicer blade.)
BTW, has anyone ever noticed that the Rikon and Craftsman B/S’s seem to have come off of the same assembly line? Like EVERY detail is identical . . .
