For years the wood used in this lamp was tramped upon and driven over. I rescued this former barn flooring and have had it squirreled away for many years waiting for special projects. the color is wonderful and the wood polishes like no cherry I have used before.
As for the lamp itself….the design is mid century and the build is mortise and tenon joinery. it has a six sided center post and a handmade shade (not by me) with leaves embedded in the paper.
hope you like it and no it cannot be used as a paper towel holder :)
Edit: added a photo of the prototype lamp done in mahogany for you to see center post.
edit 2: added a photo of walnut lamp with burlap shade.
