    well now that I’m down for a few weeks I have time to catch up on some posts from things I have made. This year I donated a mesquite lamp to the local RMEF chapter here in Tucson, Arizona. This lamp was really fun and I’m itching to make a bigger one for myself. Cost was about $50 with the shade. Sold for around $250 at the auction. All c and c welcome! This was a first for me so go easy lol! Had to improvise on a few things like fitting the lamp part to the inside diameter of the copper pipe! All in all a very fun project :good2: Now what to do to up next years project :ponder:

    Done. Hey that's a cool idea! I might have to steal it from you. Maybe I missed it in a different thread, but what's got you laid up?

    As iron sharpens iron, so man sharpens man. That lamp not only looks great, it shows creatively. When I see something I like, I take it home & add it into my tool box, if I don't like something I leave it where I see it. This my Friends, I have added into my tool box. Great Job

    I like it!!
    Great way to display the “imperfection”.
    Bet it was no lightweight lamp— won’t be knocked over.
