Wooden Lamp

This was a cut off walnut disc that was saved from being chopped up into firewood.

Cleaned up its bark and inner rotten crumbs

Spalted maple resawn to the proportional thickness, cleaning up with a hand plane

Original base design….

Alternatively, chosen another design for the base, dry fitted with the light bulb

Thought that the grain of this walnut piece would be a good match to the lamp

All parts fitted…

First coat of oil varnish applied

Multiple coats later…

Home made switch “block”

Finished desk lamp
