Beautiful lamp… I always wanted to try stain glass. But another hobby, needing more tools, more space….

Very nice. I’ve always admired stained glass. Even considered trying it but gave up on the idea as I don’t have enough time to get all the other things done on my list.

Thanks to all for the nice feed back . hours wise maybe 60 for both lamps glass that is. bases and tops are wood that was fast and folding and welding the frame was easy with a wood buck to hold the pieces maybe if i get a chance ill post some other projects ive done like a 5hp cyclone dust collector some of you may be interested

That is very nice. If I’m seeing things correctly you put a bulb in the base to back light the base panels? You are more ambitious than I am. I call the local stained glass folks and they do the glass work for me. Not cheap, but then I don’t know the first thing about how to make stained glass.
