What You'll Need
– Measuring Tape – Pencil – Miter saw – Wood Glue – Ruler – Stain – Dowel Joints – Clear coat – Lampshade (to see how I made this lampshade visit this link) – Floor lamp kit (home depot sells them.. I spray paint mine copper)
Here’s and example to show you the angles for the base.
Here’s a snippet to show you the measurements you’ll need for the base.
Use a ruler to mark the center for each piece of wood. To get the holes drilled evenly.
I then drilled two holes on each side to insert my dowel joints. I started with a smaller drill bit and worked my way up until the hole was big enough to fit the dowel joints.
Don’t forget to use glue. I used gorilla wood glue.. LOVE IT.
This is how the top looks. 😀 Once I was done putting the base together I cut my 4 pieces measuring 50″ long and assembled the floorlamp together.
Well what do you guys think?
I love the details in the wood grain. So beautiful. It definitely has a rustic feel.
