Lamps & Shades

The lamps displayed in the gallery are created from leftover scraps from rocking chairs or leftover walnut cores from the veneer manufacturing process. The lathe is a wonderful tool that allows me to create many different shapes and designs for the bases and ferrules. The shades are made from veneer wood, strengthened by applying a clear epoxy and fiberglass to the inside. The walnut rings on the top are turned and the rings on the bottom are steam-bent to shape. This combination produces a durable shade. The shade can be built from any veneer wood, producing a variety of color, shapes and grain textures.


The shades are made from various “burl” veneer, which is stunning when not lit, however when lit, the light produces a warm glow and a WOW factor… again an attribute to God’s creation!
