Cutie Mark Crusaders Lamp by Inciatus Cutie Mark Crusaders Lamp by Inciatus
This is a lamp I made. It has Applebloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo from lowest to highest. On the lampshade in the CMC's insignia.

Height: 36in including shade
Base: 6in x 6in
Weight: ~3lbs
Thickness: 5/4in
Time: 24 hours
Cost of parts: ~$15

The wiring flows through a 1/4 inch hole in the base up through a 5/8in bore into a 5/8in rod with a 5/16in bore into the fixture.

Tools used: Scroll Saw, belt sander, wood file, mitre saw, electric drill (not a press), scissors

Things I learned:
-left handed scissors would make the fabric part easier
-the fabric left bits of strings falling off which stuck to the shade which I couldn't get off before putting the yellow on
-the fabric deforms a lot when being put on the shade
-my mother likes Applebloom the best

When I look at that lamp, my mind immediately sees that the CMC destroyed a table but ended up repairing it which is not a table but a wooden sculpture.

Indeed, I am often reminded of that sculpture. Maybe I should make one.

Well the table they screwed up on. I'll just have to think of someway to make it useful.
