    In case we ever get an IKE type storm in TN

    Getting ready for a show this weekend, and since IKE came along, thought might get some interest in these lamps... they are a modified hollow form, with the little oil candles you can get at hobby stores and a couple of lamp chimneys that I picked up at the local thrift store.

    The wood is Iroko.. I had a flat board about 13 in. square x 1 1/2 thick. I quartered it and hollowed it like a bowl, then glued them together to form an orb..

    Finish is just tripoli, and carnuba.

    The other lamp is a piece of spalted maple with same candle lite and chimney from thirft store.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    That's a neat idea and great looking lamps. I'll have to try that, too.
