Unfortunately life got a way from me and lots of time passed. Fast forward to Spring of 2022. What? Why so long Kim? Well classes, COVID and life just took over. In May I realized I was holding the lamp hostage- afraid of what needed to be done and how to do it. I started work and when I went to put it together is fell apart because there were no horizontal lines only vertical. Design flaw.
After sitting down and roughing out a drawing I realized those horizontal lines were necessary- redesign. When it was redone with horizontal lines all was good. Lessons learned: really look at the design before jumping in, plan for hiccups and remember that sometimes accidents can be learning experiences.
The lamp looks great and will be going home in August.
