Here is an attractive lamp that is so easy to create. The lamp has an oriental feel yet goes well with most any decor.
Woodworkers do not generally think of a lamp as a typical project. Free lamp plans turn any craftsman into a lamp designer with many choices in style, shape and size. Choose beautiful hardwoods or use scrap lumber to create a simple lamp, completed with common hardware from your local DIY store.
Use a jigsaw to create simple shapes for a hurricane lamp or use a lathe to make an English spindle lamp. A Japanese shoji lamp is easy to build with wooden strips and shoji paper. Add a commercial lighting kit to any project and complete your new lamp.
A birdhouse or spinning wheel lamp is an advanced project that really shows off your skill. However, free lamp plans are available at all skill levels and there are projects for everyone. Whether you use scrap lumber or choose exotic hardwoods, your woodworking project will add a beautiful decorating accent to any room.
