Lamp with bit of a differences.
Base wood lathe into 3 pieces of very old River Red Gum and the bottom smaller sections of Jarrah!
The Tribal horse carving is sitting between 2 bits of 6mm thick glass, the the lamp kit is sitting behind the carving and behind the lamp is a 5mm mirror too reflect the glare out wards.
The outter frame is made from the Pine wood shaped on the woodlathe and the mirror sections turns into a gate way “door” to allow a person to change the light globe!
This project wasn’t plan on paper, has taken a 2.5 months to create and to make and it also stands 54cms or 21.5 inches by “lamp section wide 21cms or 8.5 inches & height: 40cms or 16 inches” and the base height 15cm’s or 6 inches by wide 21cm’s or just over 8 inches.
With a few errors and mistakes on the way!

great work ,
the only thing i would do ,
( as i’ve done before )
is put a frosted plastic sheet ,
(like the stuff they have in drop in ceilings ) ,
between the light and the back of the glass ,
to defuse and hide the bulb ,

this is a good project for many to do ,

The time taken to finish this project shows your involvement in making it and it has turned out beautiful. A few more pictures would have shown all the facets of the lamp. I endorse David’s suggestion.
