Yes, a 3rd lamp post this month. Sue me. Instructable user Trask River Productions has put together a very comprehensive 34 step instructable on how to make this really good looking Log lamp shown above. Honestly, it looks very well made, which makes sense considering the person/company. I’m impressed with cutting out all the wood from the base to get the the electronics to fit. I would have expected it to be in an attachment to the base. I bet they could (and hopefully do), sell these for $100, there’s quite alot of work that’s gone into them.
They used a regular log and cut it into sections:
After the pieces are cut, holes are drilled in each one to run the tube:
I was going to show more photos, but why bother when you’re better off reading the Instructable yourself. This way you get all the correct information straight from the source. If I had a place for something like this, I’d make it, but I have no room anywhere, so it’s not worth it, not yet anyway. The one change I would make is instead of a regular light bulb on the top, I’d continue the LEDs up there. Make the whole thing LEDs, it’s better. They have warm white LEDs too, so it’s all good.
