« Part 4: Trimming veneer to length Part 5 of Another Veneer Pendant Lamp series Part 6: Bottom cover »

I didn’t apply finish to my previous spiral pendant lamp until after it was fully assembled, and that was a challenge. On this one, I applied satin poly prior to the glue-up.

The magnets had to go in early, too. They were a friction fit requiring a hammer to tap them in, which was so much easier to do before the ribs were glued to the bottom ring. I took care to make sure they were all oriented with the same polarity. These magnets will align with corresponding magnets on the bottom cover that will be removable to access the light bulb.

All the parts sanded and ready for sealer.

I taped-off the ribs where glue will be applied later.

Now on to the bottom cover.
