Single LED lamp powered by two AA batteries.
Made of mahogany and rosewood for the base. The battery holder is for 3 batteries, but the LED that I remove from a cheap flashlight was made for two batteries, I did not have a 2 batteries one. I just made a bridge with a little cable reaching the other terminal and worked fine.

the lamp is 3.5 in x 3.5 in x 7 in.

Nice. Seems pretty bright for one LED.

Nice looking lamp! I like LEDs for lighting as they are the most efficient … other than the sun.
What is the diffusing material, Plexiglas?

Have you calculated battery life? Divide the mA hours of the batteries by LED current in mA for a very close value.
Depending on use you can always use a larger battery, like C or possibly even D cells

the diffusing material is packing paper, one that its very thin. and no, i have not done any calculations. as i don’t know the specifics of the LED i can really tell. it was scavenged from a flashlight. but the actual flashlight was to i

i did no use bigger cells as the request was for that size, but eventually i will make bigger ones.

It has a very nice light effect. Beautiful butterfly scroll work. Well done!
