This instructable assumes you have a turned wood lamp base (or something similar) already made and finished.
If you haven't ever turned anything on a lathe, I highly recommend it.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
- Lamp Socket, I get mine from Grand Brass
- Lamp Harp
- Check Ring
- Threaded Nipple (that's what it's called)
- Electrical Cord
- Turned Wooden Lamp Base
You need the following tools:
- Wire Cutters
- Wire Strippers
- Phillips Screw Driver
- Custom built Hand Tap
Step 2: Insert the Threaded Nipple
Step 3: Insert the Electrical Wire
Using the wire strippers, expose about 1/2 inch of copper at both ends.
Step 4: Add Ring and Harp
Place the check ring over the wire and threaded nipple.
Remove the base piece of the harp and place it over the wire and threaded nipple.
