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!

Great looking lamp! I’m sure your BIL will really enjoy it! Nice touch with the company logo, by the way!

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.
