Turning Pens into Cash
Layout the Shaft Shape
Turning the blank round reveals the Celtic knot. (Follow the instructions in issue 177 for turning the lamp [Photo F]. Aligning the pattern as shown above centers the knot where the shaft tapers away evenly in both directions, keeping the knot symmetrical.)
To buy the complete plan and patterns for the Turned Lamp, go to woodmagazine.com/plans and type "turned lamp" in the search box.
