« Part 10: Louver pivots Part 11 of "Parasitic" floor lamp series Part 12: Lighting »

There’s not much to show here except that I decided to use some connector bolts to hold the box to the top of the turret. So, before sanding all the pieces prior to glue-up, I drilled three holes in the bottom box piece and tapped 3 matching holes in the top of the turret. The holes are offset towards the rear of the turret, and they won’t be visible from the front of the lamp once I have the translucent white acrylic sheet (diffuser) mounted inside the box.

The mini dominoes worked great for this.

The box will get another light sanding before the end of the project.

Next is lighting. Finally.
