« Part 3: Socket mounting and test lighting Part 4 of Another Veneer Pendant Lamp series Part 5: Pre-assembly finishing »

With the veneer strips adjusted so they formed loops as close as circular as possible (by eye), I scored the ends where they overlapped on either side of the rib. After removing each strip, I trimmed-off the ends at the score lines and used the 3 different length strips as templates for additional strips.

I then disassembled all of the lamp pieces and gave everything a good sanding in preparation for some finish.

I can’t wait to see this finished. I might have to try my hand at making a couple of these as chandeliers over the dining table i have planned. My house was built at the tail end of the MCM architecture phase and I think these would be very fitting.

I’m scheming to do something for the dining room, as well. I’m not sure exactly what I’ll do, but planning is part of the fun.

It all looks so wonderfully crisp.
I can almost hear the wood.
Best thoughts,
