Shortly after completing the spiral pendant lamp, I started on a set of 3 companion pendants for the upstairs hall of the entryway. The structure is similar to the interior part of the spiral lamp. Each bottom plate (which is removable) has a unique design. I’ve got the lamps installed, and all that remains is to install some trim at the peak to conceal the wiring. The full build is documented here.

For a more realistic photo, I dimmed the LED bulbs to 10%:

Time to start scheming a dining room light!

Excellent craftsmanship and detail!

I wish I had high ceilings, opens up so many possibilities for large designs like these.

Thanks for all the kind comments!

@htl – I had to lookup Mr. Lucky. You’re right, there is a resemblance.

Very appealing look. What thickness is the veneer? I assume you cut it yourself?

The veneer is nominal 1/42” (0.6mm), but this anigre is probably slightly under that. I bought sheets of veneer and then cut strips to the width I needed. In the States, www.certainlywood.com is a great place to get all kinds of veneer.
