Old Oil Lamp

Early Nov. 2009

Time to Carve: 2.5 hours
Finishing: 1.5 hours

Carved from basswood the Old Oil Lamp kept me busy trying not to break the lamp handles. The filler cap was added after the lamp was carved and is nothing more than a round tooth pick glued into a hole I drilled. As I look at the picture on the screen I have released I forgot to add a handle at the top of the lamp which I will do in the near future. The handle will be made from a small gage wire formed into a loop and set into holes drilled into the top of the lamp.
