Two New Uses for Loose Tenon Joinery – Part 2

Part 1 described how a rather complicated cope and stick joint used in the construction of the Frank Lloyd Wright Frances W. Little Sconce was replaced with simple loose tenon joinery.

In Part 2 you will see how a variation on loose tenon joinery is used to seamlessly attach the shade on the Walnut Lamps I and II shown on the Portfolio page.

  1. Hey I love your loss tennin lamp, I was wondering what the lamp shade material is made out of and where you got it?

  2. Awesome thanks! I’m designing several wall sconces as well as 3 large chandeliers that will hang 22′ in the air over a large vaulted area in a lakehouse, weight is a major concern so glass is out! That rice paper looks great and great design on the lamp!
