A well made lantern built from good materials. All the solder joints are tight, it has a nice rustic finish and the re-popped antique glass really sets it off. I used three 40 watt LED bulbs; which gives a soft warm glow. I also have it connected to a dimmer switch so light intensity can be adjusted. All and all a nice accent piece for a side table, but not something to read a book by. Now all I have to do is come up with something to complement it on my other table.

About

Exploring folk art in all it's glory.

Throughout my life I have been trying to find my place creatively in this world. At various points it has been either a full-time or part time passion, depending on my employment situation at the time.

I tend to try everything. I started selling pine furniture back during what I call the "Blue Duckie Period" of craft shows back in the early 80's. Later, after a break of a few years I became DEEPLY involved with rustic furniture and sold rustic furniture around the northeast states for about 10 years. That sort of ran its course and I was once again searching.

It's funny how life circles back on us. Years ago I wanted to have a shop that was mostly hand tool powered. But it always seemed that production overruled and I ended up with a shop full of power tools. Lots of noise, dust and stress.

Now, decades later, my personal desires, health issues and life-long interest in the old ways of working, have brought me back to that point. but now I have packed most of the power tools into storage and am making most of my work with mostly hand tools.

Now, instead of trying to make 10 at a time of something, I can enjoy a quiet, dust free shop as I make 1 or 2 of something. Life is good.

    I have been creating in some form since I was a kid building forts in the woods and collecting rocks and bones. I strive to always be learning new techniques and finding ways to use them in my work.
