In my quest to make a bigger better more attractive lamp, I came up with this one. It’s realtively simple in that it’s just aromatic cedar with walnut accents. I deliberately made the walnut a lot smaller ( it’s only 1/4” thick) than I usually do because I wanted the cedar to be the prevelant material and the multi colored resin as well.
It’s difficult to see but the resin is a 4 color with purple, green gold and blue. The riser has the same resin in the center strip as the shade and I used only half as many led’s in the riser as I did on the last one in an effort to soften the light.
This picture doesn’t show it as well as real life but the four resin colors show up quite well even with the light on.

and here’s a close up of the shade resin

this one shows the top and the 5th resin ring

and then I just couldn’t close without showing off the shade with the led in red, blue and green

Thanks for looking and give me another week or so to come up with another version of river tables lol

Nice lamp Dick, on the closer pics I can easily see multi color in the resin. Great job.

These posts are a learning camp for resin use, and aren’t you using that segmented device that doesn’t require a lathe? Lotta knowledge there.

Thanks for looking -
Yes, I use the https://ringmasterlathe.com but to my knowledge they don’t promote using segments. That was my decision because I got tired of repairing tear out when cutting rings. And of course the resin is—- well, it’s resin and my design.
