Actually working on getting ready for the summer farmer's market in downtown Knoxville... first show is May 2, plus our local art guild is having their annual art show the same weekend... I make up these hurricane lamps that actually have a glass font (reservoir) embedded in the upper part of the wood turning. The font will hold about one and half cups of lamp oil. The lamps use the flat 1" wide wicks and 10" chimneys. The lamp wood turnings are about 5 to 6 inches diameter and about 5 to 6 inches tall... with the chimneys the overall height is about 16 inches. Both are finished with polyurethane.
They've always been pretty good sellers for me.
The first is oak from a friend's house.
The second is from greenheart poplar.
This is one I made earlier from red cedar... but the wood cracked after I finished it, so we're keeping it for ourselves.
This one is just buffed with carnuba wax.
