A little LED light we build for my grandson this weekend .
He is then one that thought of this first and it was on the priority list.
Made from laminated walnut veneer and birch veneer for a back ,the base is maple with walnut veneer.
The LED strip is concealed inside to avoid the bright light from the LED and the light shines through the holes which are offset from the LED ’s .
Finished with wipe on poly .

You have an artists eye Kiefer and the skill to build what you see. Not many are capable of that. A great looking lamp and an ingenious base.

That is a very cool design. I really like the different woods and how you have the holes on the sides for the light to escape. Very original, inspirational and well done!

Kiefer, what a wonderful creation and collaboration you’ve presented us with here! Excellent concept, design, and build. Interesting combination of geometries as well, with the combination of the curve of the neck, with the grid-like pattern of the base.
