Light bulb shaped pendant light

#1

After finishing this project, I think it’s time to recalibrate. Quite a bit of sanding to round out the out of round rings (was off by about .25 inch on the small rings and almost .4 inch on the large ring) Was probably time to change to a new bit though. :confused:

Hey Clint, I love your approach to this design.

Would you be able to either post your sketches here or make a garden post?
I’d like to see where I can pick up one of those light fixtures, too.

Thank you for sharing, I’m impressed as always :slight_smile:

Hi Clint,

Fantastic project. I would like to make one for my cabin if you feel comfortable sharing the files. Either way, share or not, you have a fantastic eye as the light bulb shaped pendant light is really cool…

Thank you,

Great light! I used the same lamp cord but used an Edison bulb in my lamp! Good job!

Sorry, I haven’t posted to the garden yet…Ive been busy with work projects. The svg file needs to be tweaked in a program like Inkscape to be perfectly round and notches in check. I used 1/2 inch baltic birch and when cut out, used a round over bit on each side to get the rounded edge.

Thanks @valery485 !!
@Mom5 definitely check the svg dimensions, unless you just like sanding a lot :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
