    Lamps

    I made 10 table lamps and a floor lamp.
    I used mahogany (6) and red cedar (4) for the table lamps.
    The floor lamp was made of machiche wood.
    Also in the pictures 7 hollow forms and a letter opener are included.
    I hope you like them.

    Very Well Done Alfredo.

    Were these for gifts, ordered by a customer or just for you?

    Thanks for your kind comments.

    Jeff, in fact they are my first lamps.
    Almost all the lamps are for my wife
    and children. Two of the table lamps
    are for christmas gifts. One for my Mum
    and other for an old lady who I
    appreciate very much.
    As Mohammad said, I have been very busy,
    I also finished ten platters, not included in the pictures.
    Some of them will be christmas gifts.
    My wife and children are happy with all this stuff.

    Thanks.
    Alfredo

    Alfredo the reason I asked is that they look good enought to sell for sure! It's great that you are giving them all away as gifts. I'm sure everyone will love them.

    Beautiful work, Alfredo. That's a project on my roundtoit list and I sure hope I can fashion a lamp base half as well as yours.

    They will make wonderful gifts. Thanks for showing.

    Great work Alfredo! Mexico has lots of fantastic wood, and you put it to good use! The floor lamp is my favorite. Did you turn it in sections?
