Very nice, and I LOVE the idea that it was saved from the fire place.
It looks great

A very beautiful piece of lamp from a crooked tree. Appreciate your fast action in getting it. You must have used a flexible piece of copper wire to draw the electric wire. Am I right?Sharad

This is cool. You saved it from the BURNING FIRE and made it into a SHINING LIGHT. It has something biblical to it, doesn’t it.
Thanks for sharing.

Nice save! I was going to ask how you got the wire through the tree, but Rob beat me to it. With this project you can shed some light on future plans and projects.
