These are some lamps (photo 1) that I made for our home in Florida. My wife saw a pair of dresser lamps in Amish country Ohio for $80.00 a piece. Being the wonderful husband that I am I told her “I Don’t Think So”!! I will make you a pair at home. Well, it didn’t take long before I determined that one lamp is not a problem but to make two that are reasonably identical is a bit of a challange. I finished them and our daughter in Battle Creek saw them and she wanted a new lamp for their living room (photo 2 and 3).
The matched pair are made from seasoned Pine limbs and the lamp for my daughter is made from Ash. Fortunately for me they both wanted them white, after multiple coats of spay white enamel and two coats of gloss Lacquer. The pair are 15” tall and the daughters are 20” tall.
All comments are welcome, and thanks for looking!!
