A table centerpiece or mantel ornament that will brighten the Christmas spirit of any home can be easily made in a relatively short time.
With some projects…due to the ways they are designed…it is often about as easy to make 12 of them as it is to make only one. This Lamp is a prime example of that. Since it is comprised of just two different-shaped pieces of wood (the Sides and the Bottom), once you have established your table Saw set-ups to rip or crosscut one of the eight side pieces to size, cutting another 16 or so is a simple matter of pushing more wood past the blade.
