I had some 2x4 slats laying around from other projects ripped with the table saw, so I decided to make a lamp using them.

The raw pieces

Light socket mounted

Four posts mounted with glue and a brad nailer

Slats were originally glued, but I dropped that for tiny 1/2" long finishing nails

Fully assembled - the top is removable.

Built

Provincial pine stain applied

LED Edison bulb tucked in there (don't want it to get too hot)
