Arts & Crafts Era inspired lamp. Quarter-sawn white oak. The finish includes a three step process of dye, stain, and poly. I added light fixture. A CFL or LED bulb keeps heat to a minimum.

Wonderful. And yes, the new bulbs make things easier.

Nice. Very simple design but, at the same time, attractive. Thanks for sharing and the pix. Good idea on the low heat light bulb.
