LED Lamp

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


LED LampWe used to submerge this LED remote controlled lamp into that square glass vessel.
;
It worked well until the condensation inside the LED shorted out the electronics & you don't need to guess what happened next. This was because the vessel is filled with water beads, the kind that swell up from a pin head size to a pea size when you add water.
The idea came to put the LED underneath to get the same effect.
The bottom & top pieces of wood are out of the same piece, I think it's maple.
The hole in the bottom piece is at the same depth as the thickness of the LED lamp & slots were machined to fit the top & bottom to hold the glass in place.

Finished with wipe on poly.
Thanks for looking.

DIY Floating ShelvesI made this set of floating live edge shelves for a client that loved my recent desk build from Sweet Gum. I made my way back to my local sawyer who had some of this beautiful black gum. I kept the live edges and also mimicked a live edge on the ends of the boards by cutting them irregularly and shaping them with a grinder. Check out my process here…https://youtu.be/rIv5v6NwpkU

Purple heart ring with sodalite inlayGood old purple heart that blunts your chisels. I've been meaning to do more inlays and found some sodalite that I crushed and used for this. Particularly dark purple heart, this one.
