It's really nice. I like the fabric choice alot. I think a lower watt bulb would show it off better, though. The one in there creates so much light that it "whites out" the design. Great lamp, none-the-less.

Thanks for posting the lamp Dave, it looks good in your house.

As far as the design I can't take the credit for. My wife and I wanted a lamp for our basement so I thought I would give it a shot. I was inspired by the lampmakers on here, I just had to figure out how to put it all together. I have made a couple more and plan on making more. Here is my first made with leftover material from remodeling........

Thanks Monkeyman!! They were inspired by yours (some of my favorite lamps). I wish I lived in Cali to go to one of your "lamp days".
