Topic tags/keywords: plans question

I want to make one of the FLW taleision lamps. There are two sets of plans floating around; one is from Praire Designs and the other is a small spiralbound book “Woodworking Plans for a Hillside Table Lamp: Inspired by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright”. The book is out of print and no used copies around and the company Praire Designs has suspended orders. Does anybody have a copy of either they would be willing to scan for me or if no longer using, sell? I made a trial version using online photos as a guide, but I think I can do much better on the dimensions to get the design look correct.

There’s two threads on sawmill creek that discuses it. The second includes sizing of the parts:

unfortunately, the book link is for the out of print book. the second link is for a guy who sort of did what I did, which was to cobble something together from online stuff. the actual drawings would sure help.

Have your say...
