Cherry craftsman style lamp w/ stained glassThis arts and craft cherry lamp was a design i created for my study. The finish is currently only a shelac based on the heat generated from the light. So i am testing to see how long it holds up before i need to do additional top coat treatment. 6 month so far and seems to be holding up well. The top allows light to cut thourgh in a pattern that shows on the ceiling and adds interedting shadows at night. Next time i would make it taller and more slender i think. Takes up a fair amount of real estate on the desk.I am tool poor, although my wife doesn't hhink so. So no scroll saw to do something more fancy. Most of the top was hand planed. hand sanded and finished. Some band saw work was used for the legs.

intarsia giraffeMy daughter in law asked me if I could make an intarsia giraffe to hang in the bedroom of my soon to be born grandson. I don't have too much experience with intarsia but I thought I would give it a try. It is made from a plan by Judy Gale Roberts and is made from Cedar, Basswood and Walnut. There are 128 individual pieces. Thanks for looking.
