Turned Table Lamp

from the WOOD Store

Based on the Biedermeier style of furniture created in Germany during the first half of the nineteenth century, this lamp's graceful curves and pleasing proportions make it the perfect project to hone your turning skills.To guarantee your success, you'll need a four-jaw chuck and a simple homemade centering mandrel. By inserting this mandrel into the holes bored for the lamp pipe, all the parts will be aligned perfectly when you assemble the lamp.

Measures approximately 30" tall with a 5-1/4" wide base.
