This lamp sat on top of a lamp post in front of my grandparents for much of my childhood. The stand came from Island Park...I was just looking for gnarly wood, I realized when I got this home that ants had bored the perfect hole from the top to a knothole at the bottom for the cord.
Top box I just cleaned, lacquered, and added handles. It was apparently treated with desiccant and used to ship part of a radio in Sept. of 1945. Bottom 2 boxes are reusable bearing pallet/boxes covered in flattened NOS cans attached with compound cement.
Metal bucket that sat outside my grandparents garage for years. I sanded and lacquered over the rust, which produces a leatherish effect I really like. I was able to blast this one with more lacquer than usual by spinning it during the application and drying process. Centrifugal force wouldn't let it run.
