Hung it in my spare bedroom/office for now. Until I get basement/man cave/Sunoco room done.
Made from old barn wood and LED lighting.
Now I have to make another one.

Hey Steven,

That turned out really nice. It does lack for future expansion though.

Thanks everyone!!
One more picture in natural light. I need to somehow rust the globe holders for a better look.
Also a design preview of what I think will be my next project. A floor lamp made from a Sun Oil curb sign base, a pass thru globe frame and porcelain shape.
B & W pic shows inspiration for lamp project.

Steve, I use dark walnut stain to knock back the shine. T shirt rag to put it on and let it sit for a couple of days. Neat idea on the floor light.


Have gas all the time
