Design: Lake Log Lamps
Materials: Oak, lamp hardware, electrical wire
Designer: Ben Light

"My parents live on a man-made lake, originally used for ice harvesting. The lake had to be temporarily drained (some sort of algae issue), revealing long forgotten stumps and sunken logs. I was able to get my hands on this wonderful material and turn some lamps."

VOTING IS NOW CLOSED ON THIS ENTRY

"After being submerged for more than a century, the wood has become gray and full of character. It also makes identifying the species tough, I'm guessing oak with a hint of lake dirt.

The lamps are finished with tung oil and wax. All lamps have built in dimmer switches.

Price range: $250 - 400"
