Default A set of night lamps

Hi, colleagues.
Some months ago I posted this http://www.routerforums.com/show-n-t...mp-forest.html.
Now I have finished the project. During its execution I used several different techniques to make the wooden rings for the lamps shades. Basically I used some wooden scrap which is now mentioned very often in the forum. MDF, pine, cedar, maple, chinese sticks, steel pipe scrap and even plastic lids for butter jars are involved. Digging out in google I found a safety zone for bulbs that I thought could be useful for some of us.
Amazingly, the push buton switches were the most expensive parts for my night lamps.

Lots of pictures regarding to the process are left in the bin. Here are few more.

Three coats of nitro primer and two coats of poly varnish were applied by my wife.
