Architectural Wooden DIY Tapered-X Lamp

Architectural Wooden DIY Tapered X Lamp

Remember we’ve just told you of an X leg table? Such a lamp looks no less original and cozy! Have a look at this tutorial from pneumaticaddict.com and prepare a miter saw, a table saw, an oscillating multi-tool or small hand saw, a pneumatic brad nailer, 1″ finish nails, a speed square, wood glue and a lamp kit. The first step is to cut the top and bottom plates. Then, adjust the blade on my miter saw to a 5 degree bevel. Line up the blade on each edge, and cut a taper. Find the center of each square and pre-drill a small hole. Using a couple 2″ screws, attach the scrap 15″ 2 x 2 between both squares, taper faces pointed up. Head over to pneumaticaddict.com for more details.
