Nola Rollins Floor Lamp November 05th, 2018 - 22:31:03
The lamp I'll begin by cutting these three 18 inch pieces for the base. I measured the first cut and clamped another dowel to this piece to act as a cutting guide for my handsaw. This will ensure you get a straight cut with the handsaw. Now you can use a miter saw if you have one, but you don't need one for this project. The type of saw you see me using here is called a pole saw or sometimes called a Japanese saw and they're fairly inexpensive. I actually got this one from the home center, where I got the rest of these materials.
Once you have the three pieces cut to 18 inches you'll need 10 pieces cut to 2 inches each these act as the spacers between the longer sections of the base. Also note how I clamp the reference block a little off of my line to allow for the thickness of the saw blade, which is otherwise known as the serf. Once you have all these two-inch pieces cut down it's time to clean up the edges, and for this I use the piece of 220 grit sandpaper.
Now, moving on to the uprights, they consist of two vertical 36 inch, dowels that support the upper 36 inch dowel, that the light is actually attached to. I begin here by marking out the hole location for the carriage bolt that holds this section together. I first drilled a quarter inch deep hole with a 5/8 inch bit that allows the bolt to sit flush in the hole and these larger holes only go on the outside face of the lamp where the head of that bolt sits.
