Moon,

Just getting caught up since Hukilau, and I really dig your stuff! We are going to have to get together, I visit New Hope a few times in the summer. Maybe I can buy you a Pop in Lahaska, Pa. at Hart's Pub.

Mahaloz, Mo

Here's that sort of step by step of the lamps. First I used mahogany flooring left over from a job and glued a couple pieces together so I had the width to cut out the half circle. Then I glued over night the half circle to each end of the back piece.

Note I have a square marked out to cut. Annie reminded me to do it so we can change the light bulb. I wouldn't of thought of it myself.

I also applied metal flashing to the inside so if got hot there would be no problem and also to reflect the light better.


I used two candle lo bra sockets because it is a big light 13" high X 12" wide. They come in two packs at Depot and singles at Lowes. They are 7 watts each.
Now for the cover of the screws my daughter got involved and macrame some hemp for me. It was a simple knot configuration. There are sites that show how its done.

after all the wiring is done you can cover the front what I did was use rubber cement on the edges of the half circles. Then put the rubber cement on the light diffusing covers edges. Let the cement dry totally and then press on. For the bamboo I drilled it were it would be connected to the half circles edge. I used drywall nails and carefully nailed them. After all were in place I hot glued the hemp to cover the nails.




Job completed! I hope this helps all who have asked. Any questions feel free to ask!
Moon

It was warming up here also when you posted (it reached freezing), however now its cold again. I was staining tonight outside and its 12 degrees F. I need to move. Thanks for the step by step. Another project to add to the list, this one looks like fun.
