All solid wood lamp & shade.
The lamp base features a segment turned body of black cherry with maple burl and wenge accents turned in a bead shape. Eight maple burl and wenge onlays become medallions when turned. A turned waist leads to an octagonal base on 8 turned feet, all in cherry. The neck is also a segment turned section, which is then carved to undulating flattened sides.
The shade is a conical form of joined solid cherry. The translucent panels are a stabilized birds eye maple veneer. Applying a penetrating epoxy and fiberglass cloth give the veneer exceptional strength, durability and stability. The effect is a rich translucent glow. (The use of modern compact fluorescent bulbs assures that heat will not be a factor in the longevity of the shade.)
The lamp is fitted with a either a 2 bulb cluster that can hold up to 100 watt compact fluorescent bulbs, or a 3 way socket that holds a 3-way compact fluorescent bulb with the light equivalence of 150 watts for reading or tasks, or as little as 50 watts for accent lighting. The bulbs are included.
The lamp is finished in a durable catalyzed lacquer for easy care and long lasting beauty.… Read more Read less

Review of credenza with bookcase above
by sclemens Jul 22nd 2013
I have never given 5 stars to all aspects of any review, ever. We could not be more pleased with the craftsmanship, professionalism, value, and the overall way in which the project went from design to production and through to installation. Jim was great to work with. The two credenza/bookcase units he produced are simply excellent pieces we'll end up passing on to the children.
Review of Office Desk / Table
by Gennady F. May 31st 2013
We are very happy that we run into Jim Eddy through Custommade.com.
Jim took our desk ideas and transformed them into an excellent working desk. The quality of his wood work and attention to details is perfect.
We now have a unique office desk that is spacy, easy to work with and gorgeous. Jim's choice or wood and leather transformed the tradional office desk into a life style statement.
We are very grateful to Jim and looking forward to few other projects.
By the way, Jim shipped this across the county and with no scratch.
Many many thanks
