Some DangerMouse creations and projects


Hi everyone! Just thought I'd share a few things I've done recently and in the past.
A 'sundoor' and cabinet for my wife's Electro Acuscope to roll around and charge up, (because she is the sunshine in my life!)
An old Sears Silvertone guitar I refinished and airbrush-stained some leaves on to pretty it up. (ignore broken 'B' string)
....and 2 of the 4 lamps I made a few weeks ago, just because I was bored waiting for supplies on back order.
I hope you like them and feel free to copy the designs if you like them!
The lamps are made from scraps of firewood, cherry, oak and walnut from my woods.
The cherry mix has a 10w night-light on the bottom on a separate switch. Po) *enjoy!*
.....comments, suggestions or questions are always welcome and appreciated!

DM

PS-will post the walnut/oak floor lamp and the old style desk lamp soon. (only 6 pics at a time here)

Very nice work there mouse. You're certainly creative, and I'm jealous. I'm a capable woodworker and cabinetmaker, but lack the creativity!

Thanks guys! Here's two more lamps I did. I got tired of the cheap floor lamps that break whenever you look at them, soooo.... and the table lamp is different now. It's white on top when off, but GREEN when turned on. Both are oak and walnut mixed from my woods. Ya gotta love free supplies! Po)

.....did someone mention cheese dip?

I forgot to mention, those 7 degree cuts for the floor lamp 'shade' were a #@!#!#@! I had 4 or 5 pieces I cut backwards, inside out, whatever....
I finally got it perfect though!
Those are cloth curtain inserts I sewed up on the antique pedal machine we have btw.
I still think I should change to the white plexiglass inserts though, the bulb shows through the cloth a bit too much.

I really like your work. Do you sell any of your lamps? What color is your finger nail polish? Keep up the good work, Dorf Dude...

Beautiful! I've seen pieces in high-end furniture stores that don't show that quality of workmanship .

That sundoor is incredible! Looking at it, I was trying to figure out how you did the rays of sunshine. Since I don't know very much about woodworking, of course I can't figure it out. The finish on the wood looks great. It must have taken a lot of time to complete it.

I think I'll wander over to the woodworking forum to see your other posts.

For the rays of the sundoor, I sliced up a 2x4 into 1/2" strips, ran them through the planer and then went nuts freehand with the router. It was fun!

Followed by hours of sanding? It looks great.

Nah... being planed and routed left them pretty smooth actually, they hardly needed any sanding at all! Po)
I finally got around to taking a picture of the desk lamp lit up green.

Thank you!

The first pic of it was before I took the white plexi and spray-painted the underside with florescent green.
It's white still when off, cause it's thick, but green when turned on.
I've always liked the old style green glass desk lamps, so this was sort of my version.
