This 18th-century inspired lamp offers a chance to practice both faceplate and spindle turning. The design accommodates a range of lathe sizes and turning abilities by using beads to conceal joints. The author explains how he pieced the shaft from four pieces of 4/4 stock; there are directions on how to make a shaft using a single piece of stock, too. He offers detailed information on wiring the lamp to code and where to find the hardware necessary to finish your lamp.
