A woodturning of a small lamp.

I had this small 4 light ceiling fixture, that had a broken globe that couldn’t be replaced.

It sat in a box for quite awhile, so one day I decided to make a small lamp with my lathe.

I glued up two pieces of a Pine 2×6, & cut a starter disk for the lathe.

It has a Walnut Watco finish.

The base is 4 1/2” in diameter, the total height is 9 1/2” tall.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I tore the cover off of the bottom, to show the wiring.

Really nice you can never tell it was something else once and it is beautiful. Are you going to make more out of the other globes left?

Pretty cool, Dick. I sometimes wish I had a lathe so I could do some projects like this. Is the shaft for the switch a piece of tubing or something? I can’t quite tell how you did that.
