I really like the holy block base.

On a serious note, do you supply these with a lampshade or something.

on this one no, but I figure that if I make enough to sell at a flea market, craft fair, or bazaar I may have to and the cinder blocks are my work bench I'm in almost the same boat as you when it comes to a shop

I told the guy who is buying this one that I couldn't supply the lamp shade for $150 dollars I would have to charge more. He said that it was Ok he had one from an old lamp he could use. Hey Dominick since it's just you Dave and me on this thread I figure that we can speak freely haha. I would like to learn how to carve you should post a tutorial on here someday

Tutorial sounds good


I'm in and out today, 08:30 and I've already moved 1200 recycled bricks by hand.

Maybe I could use one of your lamps to work into the wee hrs. (Just said that so I'm still on thread lol)

Does $150 include delivery, I can provide my own shade too

I kinda did, but not a total step by step process but the basics.
I've been busy with these mallets and drill press restoration I haven done one in awhile. I just picked up 6 new carving tools today at woodcraft. Once I'm done with the drill press I may do another.
Here's the ones I did awhile back. Not sure if you've seen it?

Shoot Dave, I wish I could. You know what yall should move to Texas there is a house with a shop next door for rent $650 a month. I can talk to my landlord and he will probably waive the deposit since you would be coming all this way. Then I will build you a lamp lol

Dominick, no I hadn't seen those thanks.

By the way thanks both of yall for following the thread

If my wife had all her kids from here's at home I would consider it. Rather buy than rent though. What is a house worth to buy in those parts.

Looking good Tommie. I like the mortised base, especially how you stepped it.
On another note, I live in the country with a 1900 sq. ft house, which appraised for around 50,000. In town , it would appraise for more of course. But I refuse to live in town.
Keep up the good work.
