Birdseye Maple Edison Lamp
I’ve always liked the look of the Edison Light Bulb. There’s something about the glowing filaments that is very relaxing. I purchased a piece of glass artwork a few years back that had 2 filaments that illuminated a glass orb. I knew that I didn’t have the skills to craft anything of this sort, but I figured that I could build a case that would showcase these bulbs. Now I am a woodworker and the bulbs only cost a few dollars more than a standard light bulb, so I realize that the focus should probably be on the through dovetailed box that I built… But I personally still focus on the bulbs themselves. Other than the tedious work of wiring the light sockets, this is actually a very enjoyable (yet challenging) project. So enjoyable that I’m having a hard time not building more.

We bought an custom edison lamp from you about a year ago. It sits on the mantle of our non-working fireplace. We were unable to give you a review for some reason on Etsy. We LOVE our lamp. It gets the most attention when guests are over, over any piece in our home. I can’t thank you enough for your craftsmanship. The quality and detail of our lamp is beautiful. Thank you again!
