The Desk lamp is another design made popular by Frank Lloyd Wright and is seen
in many of his houses. The May House in Grand Rapids, Michigan was one
place that featured this style.

Looks real nice, where did you get the stained glass at? I’ve been looking in the crafts stores, but they only have small iregular pieces. I tried making some with glass paint from the crafts store, but it didn’t look right, lots of streaks.

Nice job on the lamp. I’ve always liked this design. I’ve done quite a bit of stained glass panels, and have been looking for a good project to start combining glass and wood and think this might be it. Thanks for the idea and inspiration.

Beautiful lamp. The design it casts on the wall is amazing.

maluco, the cost is $689 if YOU want to buy it, but HE donated it to raise money for charity! Way to go, H !

I have the plan to build this and probably will in the future. Yours looks very nice and well crafted. Definitely makes me want to make it now.
