So Mrs Dave 'suggested' I make her something for Christmas, and we don't have room for any more furniture so I had to think small. She's got a pretty good collection of lamps from her time living in Germany (where rented flats have high ceilings and don't come with light fittings!) so I thought I'd add one more. I adopted a lovely piece of figured sycamore from work and combined it with a piece of black walnut for some contrast. The base and stem were hand turned, and the holes in the shade correspond to the date we got together, just to make it a bit more personal.

How very romantic!
I managed a tea light holder for Mrs Greg
I hope you like my son's caricature of me! If you want one of you - PM me.
