A Few More Items
I started a floor lamp for Mervin by first making a bit of an interlocking base and then gluing the pieces together. Once glued, I drilled out the centre and attached a 1/4″ dowel. Once that was in place, I drilled a hole in some basswood block and glued it onto the dowel and then carved out an ornate centre and top piece for the lamp. Right now, I’ve glued a miniature christmas tree light into a drilled hole at the top ( no, the light will not actually work!). I need to come back to this and make a lampshade from brass sheet.
Of course, these folks weren’t reading by the light all of the time, so they also needed a good radio…which they’re having Mervin’s Movers relocate to their new home. Once the tuning knobs are on, it’ll look really nice.
Lastly, I carved out a guitar and put it in a case. Ok, then, it’s just a case but we’ll imagine that there’s a really well carved guitar inside. His load is definitely expanding…
