In Part 5 see how the lamp shade is laminated and fitted to the shade frame.
In Part 4 see how the electrical components of the sconce are installed as it is lit up for the first time.
The finish is applied and and I am assembling the sconce.
Watch the video to see how the sconce is put together and what is in store for part 4.
The parts are cut out and I am applying the finish – before assembly. I am finishing before gluing up because it would be difficult to apply the finish after assembly, especially between the slats.
Watch the video to see the finish I’m using and what is in store for part 3.
In the last post was a short video of preliminary drawings of a Modern Prairie Sconce. In this post see a video of part one of how the sconce was built.
I’m working on a drawing for a modern prairie sconce and made a short video about it. I would welcome your input and comments on the design as I will be working on the prototype soon.
Just added to the Woodworking Plans Page –
The Prairie Style Picture Frame was designed for a print of the skylight in the entrance to the architectural studio of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Home and Studio in Oak Park, Illinois. The frame is inspired by the Prairie School of Architecture of which Wright is considered the founder.
The finished picture frame is 38 1/4″h x 19″w x 1″d
An 18 page plan set that includes measured drawings, detailed instructions, construction photos and illustrations. Also included is information to purchase the print shown in the photo and the special staining technique used for the frame.
