I just finished this desk lamp last night. The base and top are reclaimed American Chestnut log slabs that I salvaged during renovation of my cabin, and the upright is mountain laurel with the wiring hidden inside using my usual “secret” method. Inside the upper part are four rows of 5050 LED strips on a copper sheet. A rotary switch is buried in the base with a turned laurel burl knob, and a 12VDC wall wart transformer powers it, so it could work equally well in a RV or an off grid cabin. Finish is Zinser clear shellac.
