Project Information

This is a set of four wall lamps I made for my cabin. The backs are reclaimed American Chestnut log slabs salvaged from the siding of the cabin when I was renovating it; the arms are mountain laurel. The 6" pierced tin lampshades I found at a flea market, and I used 3/4" copper pipe to cover the lamp sockets. The pull chain switches are buried in the back, with top exiting cords to go to overhead receptacles in the spaces between the bedroom windows. Finish is clear shellac, which did a wonderful job of darkening the weathered chestnut boards and bringing out the grain. I still have two more shades so I'll eventually make two more for the third bedroom.
