    Mesquite

    This is a pratice run on a much larger one. The larger one won't be the same shape but it will be Mesquite. 8 inchs tall by almost 4 wide. Antique oil finish. The shade will not be with this lamp. Hope you like it.

    Nicely done, a classical shape. The finish looks great.

    Don't you just love turning mesquite. It turns and finishes so predictably.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    Very nice, Dennis. As Mike said, it's a classic shape, and it works great for a lamp.
