weve had these oil lamps and the beagle keeps getting very close to knocking them off the tables so i made up some bases to keep them from sliding around.made from mahogany 6”w x 3”h.the grooves are filled with epoxy tinted with a powder made from mica and iron dioxide,can be used for many craft purposes.comes in many colors.the finish is mylands friction polish done on the lathe.rubber feet on the bottom.making 3 total.

Very nice, but the dog will find a way. Like the colored rings.

Nice solution and nice oil lamp base! We love our pets Pottz especially when they force us to solve problems. I hope you gave the little guy a treat! :)

Banzi nice green Pottzy!

A couple of questions if I may
1. I am curious just what sort of oil are we talking about here ?...not Hemp Oil I hope?
2. Why is there only three feet instead of the traditional four, wouldn’t this make it more unstable ?
suggested solution keep the Beagle away from the fumes and she wont be jumping around thinking she is on fire
3. What is the item sitting on the other Patio table behind the oil lamp?
4. Pretty snazzy looking tables too, (2016)

-- Regards Rob

Pottz, great turning, and the rings accent it well. Can’t say I have see oil lamps like the one shown. Hurricane lamps, yes. That is one beautiful piece.

I also like the candle one in the background.

Wonderful, Larry. What’s puppydog’s name? (Dogs are my favorite people, you know. They jump and run and dance because they’re happy and innocent.)
