  1. 12 Volt Floor Lamp

    Here is a unique project that I came up with. I took a 12 volt landscape lighting fixture, ordered a longer stem that matched the original (48") and built a wooden base for a floor lamp. I housed a 120 to 12 volt mini transformer in the base. I have it plugged in to a timer so that it turns...
  2. Mission Style Floor Lamps

    I designed these lamps after looking at lots of different designs. I built one for myself and one for my brother. He did the cut glass work and I did the wood work. The hardest part was making the oak frames for the lamp shades. I hate compound miter joints.

  5. Arts & Crafts Floor Lamp - QSWO

    Here is my newly completed floor lamp. I wanted something to complement an old Morris Chair we have, but my options were either box store / online schlok or mega expensive pieces I did not like.

    This was a neat job that was done when my son (Stephen III) was working with me. We both milled and glued up, then he turned the parts to round and shape on the Hapfo (not shown) while I did the pierceing on the IMPERIAL across the room. . .we had fun racing, 200+ columns in all. The parts...

  8. The Allium Floor Lamp in Walnut & Zebrawood

    Most of my designs begin as a general shape in my mind and as I develop the concept I start to think about color, texture and materials. My initial concept was the Allium in Green, but as I began working on that piece I considered a variation that used complimentary woods for the two distinct...
  9. Floor Lamp with LED Light

    I made this floor lamp with a combination of walnut wood and plexiglass. For the pillar I used the rest of the end of the board, whose edge I left in the original-unchanged look. The plexiglass is a transparent thickness of 2 cm. On the back of the plexiglass, I scratched the vertical lines...

  12. Rispal Floor Lamp - my interpretation...

    A friend asked me to make a Rispal Floor Lamp for his home. Designed and made by Jean Rispal in the 1950's, I agreed to give it a go. Looking at it, it seemed like something I should be able to do without too much trouble…(first error). Knowing I would make a pattern, I offered to make two -...

  15. Tripod Floor Lamp

    I completed this lamp about a year ago, and a fellow LJ-er pointed out that I hadn't created a project page for it, so here it is. The full build is blogged here. The lamp is a rough replica of one that popped-up when I was googling for mid-century modern lamps. It's attributed to Alder...
  16. "Parasitic" tripod floor lamp

    I was mesmerized by the Park house in the 2019 movie Parasite, and one bit of furnishing that particularly caught my eye was a tripod lamp in the living room scenes. I really liked the moody, atmospheric light that it gave off. With some research, I found that the lamp was built by the Korean...
