The wife wanted a Mesquite lamp so I said I would make one. Every time I would start to work on it something else would come up and it would go on the back burner. Then there would be a small crack that needed glueing and time to dry. Lets not forget all the times I had to do things over because I did not like the way it looked. Anyway it stands 12inchs high and is one piece of Mesquite. Finished with Antique oil and Ren buffed.
