My wife wanted a couple lamps to go with the nightstands I made. I made this one on the tablesaw with a circle jig and then glued it all together and shaped it with files and sanders. I really like the way it turned out. The last picture is From an old Lamp we had. I just took out the wiring and shade and put it on to see how it looked.

All that hand work was well worth it! Your lamp’s look super nice!

From the grain looks like either oak or ash, so all that end grain would have been a real pain to prevent tearout with a lathe unless you were continuously resharpening (or at least you need more skill than I have). Great idea to use the table saw, turned out great.
