This reclaimed Madrone wood lamp 8×8x18 was a great project to work with curves and smaller parts. It has stained glass windows in removable window panes and is powered by a led light set.

It was a ground up build cut on the band saw. I 45’d the removable window frames with a jig on the belt sander.

Finished with oil and wax.

I agree the lines are graceful and sexy at the same time.
Beautiful work.

Was this a restoration or a scratch build? Either way it’s a very cool looking lamp.

Thank you for all the kind and inspiring words. Love you guys and gals.
I would have posted more pics of the entire build but my iPhone and lumberjacks apparently are at odds with each other for example sideways photos etc.

This was a ground up build with no help from Elon.

The curves were cut on the bandsaw. Yes, there was some head hurting thinking when gluing the curves but hey someone told me to save the cutoffs! The glass panels are held in with some small swivels…I’ll get the pic.

The roof/top is free formed out of arbutus and sits in it’s shaped home.
