Started with two limbs from the neighbors lilac bush and a mulberry tree, put them on my lathe and magically my first lamp materialized out of the logs.

For The brace I used mulberry and the lamp body lilac wood.

This project was A lot of fun and challenging in a couple areas. I’m quite sure there will be more lamp turnings in my future.
