50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 #14: Lamp base

04-15-2019 03:47 PM by mnguy | 0 comments »

Segmented cherry lamp base as part of a larger project (posted separately as a project to talk about the shade). It was nice to not have to hollow this thing and to concentrate on the exterior form and finish. The project went well overall. I did a segmented top, and the true center was difficult to locate and the hole for the pipe / conduit ended up a bit off-center. I really needed a cone live center, as my small cup + point center didn’t center well in the hole. I now have a cone ...

How to make an Arts and Crafts style lamp shade #1: Some initial thoughts

11-28-2018 10:39 PM by splintergroup | 11 comments »

I’ve had reasonable success selling Arts & Crafts style lamps and currently I am making another set.One of the challenges with these lamps is building the shade. There are a number of angles and dimension to consider and any error in one of these parameters will alter the parameters of every other piece. When making an A&C style lamp, you build the lamp body and you build the shade. Each is about the same amount of effort. I thought a blog post would be a good way for me to coll...

Walnut Lamp #1: Inlays

09-18-2015 04:53 PM by BobFrankly | 1 comment »

This article comes partway through the project. I’ve completed the shaping on the base, and picked my pieces for the neck of the lamp. I’m doing some inlays for the sides of the neck, Orange Osage into the Walnut.I made the cuts on the table saw with a crosscut sled and a scrap piece of 2×4 braced against the sled fence to hold it in place. Card Scrapers made short work of any spots that were too wide as I tested the inlays above.Glue up was interesting, the thin end of th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1539: Task Lamp Steampunk Makeover

04-20-2015 12:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Spring has finally arrived here in Nova Scotia! After the long, harsh winter, even me – one who loves winter – was ready for a change. The days are getting longer and the air is warmer and the last remnants of snow piles are slowly disappearing. I often find that the change of season encourages me to do some work around the house. Even though I was in the midst of my Haunted Carousel project, as well as several other things that I have on the go, on Saturday I opened up and l...

A Special Lamp for a Special Lady #1: Getting Started

10-02-2012 12:23 AM by William | 23 comments »

Some of you who read a lot of my ramblings know that I mostly work with cottonwood, pecan, oak, and mahogany (sapelle actually). The reason for that is that it’s what I have available. So I do what most woodworkers do. I work with what I have. It do not have the funds to seek out more exotic woods.Well, over the course of the last year or so, I have recieved several other species of woods from friends, mostly fellow Lumberjocks. I have been hoarding this wood because, truthfully, I̵...

Shadow Casting Lamp

09-12-2012 04:59 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 7 comments »

This shadow casting lamp creates a cool effect to any room by casting a shadow on a wall of any scene you’d like to create in the lamps silhouette panels. For this project I used horses. The front of the lamp shows a horse in a natural calm state on all 4’s . And the frosted front panel of glass gives a nice subtle tone of light to illuminate the room. The back of the lamp has a silhouette of a horse raring on it’s hind legs. This is the side that casts a shadow on...
