Here is a lamp I finished today. It is from a dead Mulberry tree that was cut at my daughter and her husbands place. He knows the grandson of the woman who planted the tree. I made the lamp so he can give it to the grandson.

This is the first time I have ever worked mulberry. It is not had to work and I think it turned out good.

It is a mini lamp and I still have to electrify it.

I am posting two pictures - the first one shows the grain of the wood more but the second one show the color better. I'm sure it will darken some with age.

First off, have you drilled the center for the cord to pass through yet? If not be very careful!! After turning, the moisture content can be different and make the piece more apt to crack and split. Second, I have seen what I thought was old oil finished cherry that was mulberry. Yes it will darken as it ages, and as it is finished, if not sealed in urethane.

and lastly, as always, Great work Rohn!! Very Happy

I have made many lamps like these and drilling the hole for the electric components is done before it comes off the lathe. It has poly urethane on it now. I know that it may darken quite a bit with time as many woods do.
