Hi everyone,

This lamp will be my official gift for my brother in law’s birthday.
He owns a recording studio and this is his company logo.
It’s the same simple construction as lamp #3, only a bit taller.
The logo was cut out with a lasercutter. Which a friend did for me.
I used 2 little nails, bottom and top of the logo to attach them.
The wood is some sort of ( reclaimed ) hardwood. Oak for the base and window frames.
Measurement are : L 11.8’’ x W 9.8’’ x H 24.4’‘
finished with Danish oil and beeswax.

Thanks for watching!

Nice lamp Thomas. A great use of wood to reuse. How did you hide the electric cord in the leg?

Thanks so much for your comments, hope he likes it. Schoffleine i dont understand :( Darrel great to hear from you, i drilled a hole with an extended forstner bit. I’m going to change this method because it tends to wander of it’s path, lot’s of smoke and my brandnew bit is already dull :)

Beautiful! Has a nice Asian Arts & Crafts look. Somehow I missed the first one. That one looks great also!

Tag, what material did you use for the “shades”? It looks great with the logo.

I also saw a treble clef in that logo. On closer examination it looks like an S and an h. Either way it
a very nice logo and lamp.
