This looks way awesome! I was online looking for some <a href="http://www.joannasflorist.ca" rel="nofollow">flowers in Hamilton</a>, and this came up. I'm glad it did. Thanks for sharing!
Nice. I plan to re-do my home with a rustic decor. Your I'ble will come in handy. Thanks!
This is great! I have several old lamps that I've accumulated from bootfairs, thinking they 'might come in useful sometime'. Now I know what to do with them, they definitely will!
A possible source for the lamp body; go to a landscape company or tree trimming company and ask them for a piece of the tree they just cut down or trimmed. If you go to their job site, be careful as there are chain saws and chippers in use!!!
Good choice of wood, nice pieces. L
