this is a table i made from an oak slab that had just a beautiful form, and i wanted to showcase it in a way that it would be seen, and then i realized i had a curved piece that would be perfect for a lamp, so i combined all of these wooden parts to made a great table lamp and i gave it to my son, and shipped it to utah, it has developed a crack that will need fixed, but it will just add to it, thanks for taking a look .grizz

Grizz,

Nice form to piece. Nakashima to the rescue! A couple of Dutchman (bow tie) braces?

Very cool lamp. Those crosscut pieces always seem to crack! :(

Beautiful job. Looks great they way you have assembled it. A bow-tie will only add to this piece. NICE work!

You’ve done a wonderful job showcasing the oak slab and natural curved base/lamp. Many times its best to let the wood speak for itself. Al that is needed is to shine a little light on it! Great piece.
