A Little Bit of Plywood. A Little Bit of Pride.
Okay, I know that pride is a sin, though perhaps not as much of a sin as cat juggling or walrus teasing. But I wanted to show off a bit of a project I just finished.
It’s a funny thing because this all happened with a few pieces of plywood (and a bit of birch) and some amazingly detailed plans from Prairie Designs in California. This was the project, um, maybe mid-stage. There are some short plywood rectangles, some long plywood rectangles, a few two-level rectangles (which were out of birch but could have been out of plywood), and a post. Yup. Not showing the wiring right now, but that was a pain to do so I’d rather not discuss.
Anyway… After countless hours - well, probably 40 or so - I finished my project, a recreation of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin III lamp. I think it looks pretty nice. It’s a much softer glow than you see in this photo.
