    I would suggest you put foam on the feet to prevent marring/cracking the glass table?

    Nice looking lamp, and cool idea to use the weight of the arm to hold the clamp to the table or desk. But how did you actually build it? I hope we get an updated able soon . . .

    Nice design. It fits really well with the other furniture in the room.
