How to: Make a Wooden Vintage Bulb Lamp

Nothing beats a great lighting project, and I especially like the thoroughness of this original. It’s more than just a “get an existing lamp kit and put it on some sort of structure;” rather, it walks you thorough not just the woodworking but also the easy electric work required to put something like this together.    

You could produce the exact lamp shown here (you’ll need access to a bandsaw) or you can simply follow it as a guide to see what a nice chunk of hardwood and a few components from the lighting section of the hardware store can do.
