Nite Lite for the Wife

Project by scrappy posted 143 days ago 890 views 1 time favorited 14 comments Add to Favorites Watch

Nite Lite made from a Sea Urchin shell.

Base is layers of Maple and Walnut. Lots of prep work gluing this up before turning, but worth it.

Base is about 8 inch tall with a 4 inch foot.

Please post all comments and suggestions.

Thanks for looking.

All your turnings are cool Scrappy, but I have to admit that I like the sea urchin lamp shade the best.
It was also smart the way to attached it to the base.
That is one of a kind my friend.
Good job !

-- Having fun...Eric

Thanks for all the great comments everyone.

Matt, Check out my Sea Urchin Ornaments for Christmas 2012. This one is just a little tooo big for the tree. haha

Eric, Used the same idea last year for my Urchin Ornaments. Saw it some where on line, but had to chsnge from one post to multiple to accommodate the lite.

Peteg, Not in real good. Just got this done and it was supposed to be for Christmas. haha A little late.

Thanks again everyone.

Scrappy,

That is one heck of a fine lamp. I really like your mitered segments. That is a really tight glue up. Well done sir.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

MarkTheFiddler, Those corners are NOT mitered. You just glue a piece to the center square, trim the ends and glue your next piece, working your way around. Do this layer by layer and it comes out good without the trouble of miters! ( I hate miters) haha
