Turned Myself Into A Corner

Recommended Posts

Guest krywarick6

I got this piece of spalted maple and I thought I would turn into a lamp post. Like the dog that catches the car, I don't know what I want to do with it next.


The post is about 15 inches tall. I don't have an over height in mind, just whatever looks proportionate. I'm not opposed to mixing materials.


Though it may not translate totally, I was inspired from Mission style furniture. I know Mission doesn't normally use round features, I was trying to capture the long lines of the style. This is why I went for a long gentle loft and a short chamfering feature near the top of the spindle.


I was possibly thinking stained glass shade, that's not set in stone though. Whatever would compliment is more important.


For the base, I could turn some other shape to compliment from wood. I have birch, ash, walnut, red oak and russian olive on hand.


I also have access to steel or aluminum(bare or black anodized) or possibly lexan or acrylic.


The light bulb socket hardware is just off the shelf from a hardware store. I have already predrilled a cord hole in the middle of the entire length.


I don't want something that is going to fall over if it goes onto a night stand. I can find a way to add in any required weight.


Any suggestions or sketches would be appreciated.
