Either way is fine. Laminated blanks are very common for lamps and table legs. If you buy a log and drill out the pith, the ends will still check so buy an extra long blank. Make sure the pith is centered in the log. And you’ll need an extra long drill bit, probably 1” or larger, the larger the better actually. You’ll also be waiting about 2 years for the log to dry so hopefully you don’t need the lamp anytime soon.
