This is a lamp I built as a Christmas gift for my sister Lisa.
I'm very happy with the way it turned out. It was given without a lamp shade and my sister chose a nice square one to complement it.
The lamp is 1/2" square tubing with 1/8" rod connecting the tubes. The base is 1/4" by 1/2" stainless flat bar. It was finished by wirebrushing the whole thing to an even luster, then spraying with varnish. I have a couple more pictures: Picture two, and three.
