Hackberry Lamp

This is a chunk of hackberry I rescued from the wood stove. It turned out really neat with interesting variations and internal defects that gives it a lot of appeal.

Nice job. Beautiful piece of fire wood.
Maybe a bigger lamp shade Would even it out.

I'm guessing it would have to. Not sure you would be able to mount it without doing that.

Yep- 3/4" hole top to bottom. Takes an 18" bit and some patience.
