Wow – It’s been one of my favorite years. I’m doing things I never thought were possible for me. Without the help of my friends here at lumberjocks – well – I’d still think those things were impossible.
Thank you all so very much!
Main body of lamps is Jatoba. Edges are Bubinga. Except for the lighting hardware, no fasteners were used although I was VERY tempted to pull out the pin nailer.
I had lots of issues with miter saw accuracy. I’ve had enough problems such that I’m building jigs for my next project. My miter saws will be kept to do household trim. My table saw will do my fine cutting from now on.
Last thing, I’m not sure I want to leave the dullish tung oil finish as is. If you have a suggestion for me. I’d be glad to give it a go. I already have 5 coats of hand rubbed tung oil. Although my muscles are getting a little stronger, I’m not pulling the beautiful depth out of the wood.
-- Thanks for all the lessons!
