This lamp is a juxtaposition of nature and artificial beauty. The lamp weighs six pounds, has an 8ft cord and dimmer switch. It is quite a chunk of tree!
The wood: I think it is redwood. I scored a large stump on a discard pile left by the city. Next, I seasoned it in my oven to reduce the moisture content for cutting. I didn't shellac it, but left it natural with a simple layer of beeswax.
The hair dryer: is from the 50's or 60's. It says "Handy Hannah" one can only imagine what Hannah is handy with...
The components of the lamp consist of one lamp cord, and are UL certified. I'll include a few 10-15 watt bulbs. Enjoy!
