Default Table Lamp

My daughter came for a visit with my grandson for a few days. She asked if I'd make a lamp for her while she was here. She didn't want it painted, so I sprayed it with Rustoleum clear enamel.

I'm sure she would have preferred that, but she waited until yesterday to tell me and she left today, so time was short.

Thanks Jim. The twists were done with a picket twister I made a couple of months ago.

I had thought about ordering one from HF also, but then looked at the manual on the HF site and decided I could make one that would handle longer pickets since there wasn't that much to it.

Ahhh Jim, just find myself wondering, why is it all the wimmen in your life are so into furniture and accutrements that can double as building demolition tools and Husband correctors?
Maybe it's time to send them off to gentility lessons and help them develope an intrest in mineatures.

hey Jim, I've never used a picket twister what stops the picket from bowing in or out when you start twisting on it ?
