Scavenged some redwood stain wooden slats that were porous, fragile and somewhat rotten.
An absolute mistake on my part.
The project was created as I went along, gleaning images I had seen on the internet.
I feel I will burn this lamp because it doesn’t reflect my standards. One learns with hindsight.

This is very lovely. I have had an idea of constructing something like this, but from materials that could be put outside and with a solar panel on the top to power the light inside for a night light in a garden outside at night. The stick in the ground variety seem pretty ugly to me and this would be so much better.

It looks really nice.
If you feel like burning it, burn it.
But I think it would be a shame, for such a nice work.
Use it for candlelights out side on a summer evening.
Best thoughts,

Don’t burn it… send it to me! I think it looks great.

Have your say...
