Making a lamp
Here are a few lamps I made early on. This one came about after a neighbor gave me a few leftover scraps of a variety of nice woods.
The main frame is maple, and each of the sides features a different wood for the kumiko. I made this before I had any specialty tools, like a bandsaw, so the pieces are made from standard 3/4" thick wood, a bit heavier than what I use in my later designs.
