    More for the show..

    Also did one from a Royal Paulonia tree that the local power company cut from under a power line and the owner was kind enough to give me the log... this one is about 9 inches also

    Another oil lamp that I hope goes over well... this sucker is nearly 18 inches tall and turned from a piece of white oak... dry and hard wood. The font(reservoir) is a mason jar with an adapter lid... finished in poly.

    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.

    I always wondered about Paulonia. It's got some nice grain and it finished nicely. It's invasive in our area, but have never snagged any. Noe I will try harder.

    I like the paulonia. I enjoy it when the wood is left alone enough that it really looks like wood.

    What is it about modern man that he/she gets such enjoyment from oil lamps?

    Enjoy,

    Can't answer that question, but hope they don't lose the enjoyment... for about the first 10-11 years of my life, oil lamps were the only light we had at night... I've done a many a night's home work under one..... I've made about a dozen of the ones that have the ultra-pur oil candle in them and have sold every one.... this will be my first time offering the ones that actually have a kerosene font(reservoir) in them... the poplar and the bradford pear are glass lamps that I got at Hobby Lobby and have embedded the font in the wood(shown below).... the oak one shown above uses a mason jar as the font.
