Thanks Guys,
Don, after I take it of the lathe I drill from each end on drill press with a 5/16” spade bit as deep as I can.
Then I have a 16” long by 1/4” bit to reach all the way through with.

Fantastic lamps! The woods are gorgeous and like the shapes, looks really solid. It’ll hold the whole thing. Great job!
