Here are some of the lamps I have made in the past. The bodies are diamond willow. Some have a poplar base, and the others are aspen burls, which I tend to use now since they go so well with the willow.
All my diamond willow projects are sanded in stages to a fine (320 grit) finish and covered with satin finish varathane.
We buy the frames and my wife covers them with hand-made paper and fringe.
These have all been sold.

Oh, and WELCOME TO LUMBERJOCKS. You will love this site. Best bunch of woodworker on Earth!

I wish I could find that large of piece of diamond willow. I have to make a 5’ lamp and need a large diameter for a heavy Tiffany lamp shade.
