    Another "Hurricane" lamp...

    In case the lights go out in Georgia??

    This is one I've made to exhibit in our local art guild spring art show... last time I exhibited lamps, wound up selling 2 or 3 after the show... hoping to again... This one is Spalted Maple, 5 1/2" diameter by 7 1/2" high. With the burner and chimney in place the overall height is just under 15 inches... The glass font is embedded in the wood and the maple sawdust band was used to conceal the joint where the two pieces came together... I usually try to hide the joint, but cut a little deep on this one and exposed the glass again, thus the sawdust/CA band.

    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.

    Chuck, I can see why you are able to sell those. Nice. Very nice. Even though the joint shows, which would think would be difficult to totally conceal, that is some very nice work!

    Beautiful job, Chuck. I just got some parts in from Lehman's. Going to try my hand at them. Thanks for the idea. Steve

    very Nice work Chuck.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Chuck, the lamp is beautiful. I can picture it in a home like Chuck Thoits is building and yet I can see it sitting on a very modern buffet.

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    Chuck, very, very nice looking lamp. I am not sure I would have even noticed the band if you hadn't pointed it out. I thought it was just part of the design.
