I really like the way the inlay turned out on this one. Another great lamp.

Love the lamp. I’ve got a mountainside covered with Juniper. All the times I’ve walked through them I’ve never really looked at the possibilities. You’ve opened my eyes to what I have and I’ll never be looking at them the same again.

We hope you all had a wonderful and safe New Year, today the kids are back iun school and we are getting back out to the shop full time again. The few days that we had off were sure nice and I feel the creative juices flowing once again.

Garybuck; well we have thousands of junipers and maybe a 1/3 of those have the twisted limbs that we are looking for. We are lucky to have stocked up on our wood supply and will be out and about cutting more wood come April or May, whenever the snow and mud are gone.

Tim did a great job on the inlay, it is interesting to watch how he comes up with inlay designs and how I do mine.

Sales were a bit slow last year but no terrible, I think this year will be better, actually I know that it will be better. We have to have faith and not quit!

The cord for this one is snaked all the way through the lamp from top to bottom, then the holes are patched. I envy the way that Tim has been able to drill the holes for the cord and then creat patches that match the wood perfectly.

Happy wood working!!
