This is a pair of adjustable-height floor lamps. Made with red oak, finished with Formby’s “tung oil” finish. They were a gift to my mom for her birthday. The plan was from Woodsmith, April 2002. The height is adjustable by about 11 inches, I think.

She just sent me pictures with the shades she bought for them. The finish looks a lot lighter in her house than in mine, I think.

Well ain’t that a good idea! On the base/feet…mortise and tenon or half lap?

The base is two large pieces joined with a half-lap. Some little feet are glued on, and the pillar is held to the base with four screws. So, no. Not mortise and tenon.

Have your say...
