My last project was a solid body guitar which took about 6 months. Wanted to do something a little easier and use up a cherry log that my neighbor gave me. So here is a lamp that only took the weekend. The top and bottom are from the cherry and the center piece is Ash (I think, salvaged from a neighbor’s tree again.) Finished with BLO/Shellac/Wax. There was a split in the base piece of cherry that I tried to hide (The wood was dried without sealing the ends….from my neighbor as I said) but I do like the bark bits that I left on. Kind of an experiment but what the heck. Now I just need to pick a shade for it.
