I had to look that up, sounds like it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea if I had a way to do it.If your blanks were fully dry before turning, I wonder if setting the pitch (with heat) would have been an option with this wood? Don't know anything about potential problems, just a thought that popped into my head.
The shade is Norfolk Island pine,soaked with blo and sprayed polycrylic that I wiped off. 3 coats. Need to sand it again and coat one or two more times. I need to play with the lights to see if I can reconnect with wire after I cut it,so it will go around layer out flat not stood on edge.Wow! That's some spectacular wood. Had no idea the color would darken that much with some finish on it. Can't wait to see the whole thing completed and all lit up.
It has been very slow,I’m in the process of drilling it out. I have to cut and solder some of the lights to get them to curve on the flat side. Now that the vase challenge is over I’ll go back after the lamp.Hey Troy, had time to make any more progress? Inquiring minds (or rather my mind) want to know.
I’m waiting for some more lights to show up,going to bring some lights to my dad to see if he can reconnect them as I haven’t been able to. I’m glad you like it,I’m not real happy with the whole thing. My old lady likes it so I guess that’s all that matters.Keep working on it, you're on to something. That shade is outstanding!
