I've been going through my house doing a "rebuild" for a couple of years and recently made a little hanging lamp for the stairwell .
(Think remodel from the foundation to roof, including doors, windows, walls, floors and furniture. Or, an old boat builder run amok. No sheet rock, no plastic, planked with timbers and boards milled from local Redwood and Walnut, fastened with screws, all the while shamelessly stealing ideas from the brothers Greene or Gustave himself ...)

apologies for the poor photos-
I'm having fun.

Local Walnut, Cocbolo, copper, lead and glass, A fun little project.

Wire? That baby is oil lit. None of that new-fangled electrical crap!

Very nice.

Cheers,

LOL - there is a wire. I did try to disquise it though. It runs straight up out of the "roof" between the copper straps and then into the mortised corbel which is hollowed out.
Then through the corbel (which removes with a little square through peg to access the wire) and down the face of the knee. In the image shown the wire is coming out of the corbel then running diagonally over to the nearest outlet. It is unfinished in that image and I was was wondering who would spot it!

I think Botebums a lil blind from looking at his Welcome Spring thread.

I spotted the wire crossing over the wall.
I couldn't see how it got up from the lamp to where the lamp is hung.

You should try it. It's liberating.
Hey, maybe that's how I became a liberal!
