Thread: Lamp

image.jpgWell, that's my lamp finally finished. I'm not sure about the bulb but I love how the stump has turned out. Thanks for your help. Now I just need another project!image.jpg

Thanks for the information, Ron. I think I'm going to go with oil as the stump is quite lumpy so wax might prove problematic, even with the cut down brush? I will definitely post a picture when I'm done

That is lovely. And the wood was just from a pallet?

The carrier bag method worked! I now have a dried and drilled piece of wood for my lamp. Next question is the finish. Would oil or wax be okay to use on a lamp? I've taken the bark off.

Thanks, Ron. I will give that a go and let you know how I get on. I am in Tayside, Scotland so I will try to check out the local wood turning clubs near me.

Thanks, to you both for your advice. I'm not sure if my skills are up to wood turning, Sam, I've only been restoring old wooden furniture. But if I ignore the turning bit, and follow the water idea I may not have to wait so long for my lamp? I'm not entirely sure what you mean by turning (sorry, I'm very green).

I'm new to working with fresh wood so could do with some advice. I have acquired a stump, it was cut about October time and is roughly 4.5 inches diameter by 10 inches in length. I would like to make it into a bedside lamp. I've been told that I would have to wait roughly a year per inch for the wood to dry out before I could use it. Is this correct? It is pine and still has a layer of bark on it.
