Janette Blanchard Table Lamp November 10th, 2018 - 15:52:16
This table lamp that I've made and it's made of nothing but salt, salt lamps are particularly trendy. You can buy it in bricks or you can also buy it in big chunks. I don't know why a horse would like that. So if you want a simple, just geode, looking one pretty easy to do, you can chisel it, but I'm gon na make one that's a little more art deco-inspired and I bought these two salt bricks. I'm going to cut one of them down and half fish and then I'm gonna try to insert the other one on top of it.
So that kind of sits there and I'm gon na drill a hole in the bottom insert a light kit in there and sort of make. I don't know a different style, more form, salt lamp. So I don't like cutting things into standard, even numbers as I'm a weirdo, so I'm gon na cut it at four and a quarter like that. I'm gonna use this speed square. This it's called a speed square because it's fast for squaring things. If you have a regular handsaw, whether it's a push saw or pull, saw like this one, you can cut this brick salt. I am fortunate enough to have a bandsaw, so I'm gon na get to use my bandsaw, which always makes me smile. So I'm gon na say something like this.
That's cool, you know make it a little bit bigger than what it needs to be. It can't be too tight to the bandsaw. That is pretty dope, and you know what before I was gonna put the electric into this one, but now that I'm looking at it. I think it might blow better if I actually put the lighting kit into this one, but I just cut it and it's got these hard edges. So I'm gon na use this rasp rasp that I have here to just kind of ease that when you take something with a hand tool and you just slightly round it over whether it's carpentry or metalwork or anything, it's called easing.
