Arts & Crafts style Night light - floor standing

Here’s a floor standing Night Light I made. It’s a variation on the table model I have been producing and selling on ebay and Etsy. I’m not getting rich but it provides a good excuse to spend a a few bucks on my shop. The hole cut in the bottom illuminates the lower shelf.

Also pictured here is my latest table model with glass in the top. The original design had a solid top. I like them equally well but the ones with the glass in the top provide more light.

Very nice design! I also like how a small plant can grow quite nicely under the light.

Thanks for all the compliments. To Mike, yes I make the glass panels using the copper foil method. It is a fairly easy process. Well, easy with straight cuts anyway. I’ve tried more complex patterns and they are considerably more work. I made a simple jig that looks kind of like a paper cutter but in the place of the blade I mounted two guide bars. The glass cutter sits between the bars so a straight square cut is easy.

Zen Corner, I like that!

As for the photography well, digital helps. In other words I can take 30 pictures with various lighting and get lucky on a few :o)

Kunk, I have thought about making something much larger and tall for primary lighting. i was thinking about something similar to the floor standing nightlight but with a top that was larger and elevated slightly. Sort of a lamp shade effect so that you get plenty of usable light but still have the stained glass look. One person on eBay contacted me and wanted me to use mica in a night light. I may try this at some point but mica is slightly higher priced than stained glass and I’m not sure I’d like the effect as well.
