for the lamp hardware and mounting screws (see Fig. 14). Turn the base over and countersink recesses for the mounting screws. Also bore a 1/2" deep recess with a 1"-Dia. Forstner bit for the lamp pipe washers and nut, as shown in Fig. 15.
From the Plexiglas side: bore a 13/32"-Dia. hole for the lamp pipe to go through (see Fig. 16). Also bore two 3/16"-Dia. holes at slight outward angles for the cattails.
Cut out the'base with a No. 9 Olson PGT blade at medium-low speed- If necessary, sand the edge with 15-0 grit abrasive. Before removing the protective paper from the Plexiglas, apply several coats of Interior Matte Spray Varnish to the bottom and sides of the base (see Fig. 17).
Remove the protective paper from the Plexiglas and screw the duck and leaves to the base.
Apply PermEnamel Surface Conditioner following the manufacturer's instructions. Use a stiff brush to dab a heavy coat of Clear Textured Gel Glass Paint to create "ripples" around the duck (see Fig. 18). Note: the mirror reflections in Figs. 18 and 19 make it appear as though the Gel Glass Paint is on the side of the duck, but it isn't. The Gel Glass Paint is no more than 1/8" up the side of the duck.
As the "ripples" extend from the duck, use a toothpick to drag the paint into peaks and taper toward the back as shown in Fig. 19. Allow the "ripples" to diy for about three hours. Use a stiff 1" wide flat tip brush to apply a medium coat of Gel Glass Paint to the entire mirror surface with long continuous strokes curving around the duck (see Fig. 20). Carefully wipe excess paint from the edges of the base with a clean cloth dampened with PermEnamel Surface Conditioner.
Lamp hardware arid wiring
The wiring kit I used (see Fig. 21) actually had more than enough hardware, so some of it was not even used.
Start by mounting the pipe to the base by first threading the nut all the way up on the end of the pipe. Insert the pipe into the hole in the base, then add the rubber washer, steel washer and large nut. also pictured in Fig. 21. Tighten the nut with needle nose pliers.
Push the cord up through the pipe Attach the small nut, harp holder, and socket base (see Fig. 22). Since the plug is molded to the cord, we don't have to do anything there. If you've never wired a lamp before, consult a basic wiring book or page 20 of the June 2000 issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts.
If you wish to add the optional motion activated sound effect, put a small piece of Velcro on the back of the duck and sound box, then tape the sensor to the lamp pipe as shown in Fig. 23.
Attach the harp, add a bulb and shade, then enjoy your new functional intarsia project while reading your current issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts. **
