Old project, new post
Laminated lace wood, and walnut, two sections, created with legacy ornamental Mill, and standard lathe.
Base is two layers three-quarter inch stock, grain orientated 90° for strength.
Finished with rattle can clear lacquer.
Brass lamp hardware.
I’m sorry I’m not sure why I could not get horizontal pictures to go vertical, blue tinge is cell phone pic.
Have a little fun ,Rotate monitor, laptop 90° to view
I do not have the opportunity retake pictures

That thing is pretty unique and looks great. Kind of like UFOs on a stick. Must have been tough getting all those pieces to line up (unless they were all turned at once?).

The lamp is beautiful!
I, too, have a Legacy Ornamental Mill (1500EX, a monster, over 8 feet long) and I can just imagine how you did this turning. One must also keep in mind that a central channel for the wiring has to go from top to bottom (or vice versa).
Nice work.
