glued together. Again, use a flat surface for clamping. Fasten the door with two 1" brass butt hinges mortised into the door.
The inner and outer hoods are cut from sheet metal. Copper or brass is preferred, but tin cans can be used and look good when painted fiat black. The inner hood perforations are purely decorative on the table lamp, but necessary for ventilation if a candle is used. Form a Vt" mounting flange on each side of the hood and drill three holes in each flange for fastening to the lid with small screws or escutcheon pins. Also bore a %" hole for the threaded pipe. The outer hoods should have raw edges rolled into a small rim as shown in the front and side views.
Cut pine retaining strips to fit the rabbets and predrill the strips, posts, and rails for small brads, angling the holes at the rear strips to pass between the edges of the glass. Add glass panes and push the bradded strips into place with long-nose pliers.
The lamp should be stained if made of pine, while cherry and walnut look best if left unstained and given a penetrating oil finish. Brass or copper hoods should be polished and lacquered. Glue a thin strip of pine to the door jamb to serve as a stop. Cut the door glass for an easy fit. Fasten small triangular retaining strips by spot-gluing in place. Add a brass or wooden knob and small turnbutton.
Place a threaded pipe through the lamp and cover with brass tubing locked at the bottom with a lock washer and nut, and at the top with a flat brass nut. Thread lamp cord through the base hole and up through the center pipe. After the upper brass tube is added, a sufficient length of threaded pipe should protrude so that a knurled nut. lamp harp, and socket can be added. Wire up the socket and add a plug to the other end of the cord. When choosing and fitting a shade, the lower rim of the shade should come just below the bottom of the harp.
If the lantern is made for a candle, a brass candlestick socket can be purchased or lathe turned with a %" opening from hardwood. Fasten a heavy wire carrying handle through holes punched in the top of the outer hood.
