This arts and craft cherry lamp was a design i created for my study. The finish is currently only a shelac based on the heat generated from the light. So i am testing to see how long it holds up before i need to do additional top coat treatment. 6 month so far and seems to be holding up well. The top allows light to cut thourgh in a pattern that shows on the ceiling and adds interedting shadows at night. Next time i would make it taller and more slender i think. Takes up a fair amount of real estate on the desk.

I am tool poor, although my wife doesn’t hhink so. So no scroll saw to do something more fancy. Most of the top was hand planed. hand sanded and finished. Some band saw work was used for the legs.

Great craftsmanship and the stained glass design is fitting for the piece.
I just finished some pendant lights using stained glass. I haven’t tried using came yet.
You did a great job on it.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

very cool. Depending on what the size of the bulb is, you may be able to swap in an LED bulb to cut down on heat.

Nice work, love the details. Did you do the glass or purchase the panes?

That’s right foils and sodden.
Came is for the larger pieces I design.
