Interesting,
I have saved an object for years in my workshop of similar material.
Now you show me, what to do with it.
I have seen face carvings, etc. with these type of wood burl like tree
pieces and
have saved some for a long time just wondering.......humm?

Thanks, I've successfully drilled another piece,
I'm going to make a white oak base to match the first and
have a similar pair of lamps for the LR.

My options were kind of limited, I have "zero" ability for carving
and hand shaping, but cleaning, drilling and shellacking, I can do.

I'm sincerely impressed with the artistic bent you apply, having grown up
in S Louisiana with "cypress knee" lamps everywhere.

Cypress is not too uncommon here, close to rivers.
The cypress knee lamps never caught my attention, they are nice
enough but maybe just a tad too common.

I have some large corkscrewed Rattan vine, I'm having trouble
figgering out how to get a hole through them or even a discreet way to
cheat a path for the wire.
