I am busy today with my schoolwork/fieldwork, so I thought I would show you a picture of the items we got at an estate sale and Lowe’s 2 weekends ago to make a lamp from.
We’ve already made 90% of the lamp, we just haven’t fully committed to what to do with the base; Paul doesn’t like it at all, and I think we can save it with a little routered edge, and some black paint. (I think it’s the shape he’s opposed to, since the metal base is square while the wood is a rectangle, but I’m pretty sure we came to the conclusion that it was important for balance since the top of the lamp is front leaning.)
Anyway, in the next couple of days I’ll put up the process pictures of turning the bowl into a lampshade, and by then I can hopefully show you a finished product because I’ll have completed the base.
