These lamps are constructed from koa and wenge. They stand about 32 inches tall and are actually hexagons with koa inlay at the glue joints. There are four layers of wood in each segment and the layers are koa-wenge-koa-wenge. The bases and finials are koa and the caps are wenge. It took 18 hours to create these lamps. The finish is Myland’s sanding sealer followed by Myland’s high friction polish and Liberon Black Bison paste wax. I always try to complement my lamps with a shade that completes the look. Honestly these shades are just awesome.
Thanks for looking…......
