Madrone Bullet Hole Sequel: The Table Lamp

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Madrone Bullet Hole Sequel:  The Table LampI made this lamp from the remnants of the Texas madrone log from which I made the Bullet Hole Bowl I previously posted. I tried to come up with a way to turn this one but it was just too odd to make anther bowl from.

After a little brainstorming, it occurred to me that maybe I could make a wall sconce utilizing the rotted hole to throw interesting patterns on the wall. I cut the log in a square block and sliced off some square cookies. I decided it would be too small for a sconce and instead decided a small lamp would work better. The cookies were book matched to form the 4 sides with a single piece for the top. Each side was simply edge joined and the other edges were beveled for joining the sides and top.The base was made from a block of Bradford pear by drilling a hole for the fixture and hollowing the bottom of the block to form the arched legs. I used an LED bulb that has a remote that allows you to adjust the color and brightness and can even be set to fade between random colors and sort of looks like an evil presence has taken it over.

Geode Coffee Table w/LED Light

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Geode Coffee Table w/LED LightThis was a fun project made out of a large Parota (Guanacaste) cross cut slab. The thick slice of Quartz geode has been inlayed into the surface of the table with an LED light installed below.The light is controlled by remote and has the ability to turn 15 different colors and three different light intensities (white and pink examples in the pics). It can be one color or transition between colors, or turn completely off. It is powered by a small removable power bank, so no power cords needed.The power bank can be used separately for your phone, iPad, computer, etc. There is a magnetic mounting pad for the power bank under the table, shown in the pics along with a small velcro dot for the remote (no need to keep track of them around the house or add to any clutter).The table legs are 16” high, antique brass finished industrial steel. Legs are mounted with coated screws for ease of removal if a different style or height is preferred by the end user. The table dimensions are 56”W x 53”T x 3” thick. The top is coated in epoxy. The sides and bottom are sealed then topcoated with Odie's oil.I am not a professional photographer, so my apologies, it looks much better in person. I created this table for fun to test an idea and after over 100 hours of labor, will probably not make another anytime soon.
