Finally, the brass chandeliers I built for the Tanner Goods shop have been photographed. The ceilings in the shop are close to 20′ high so this called for a big, dramatic and inexpensive light fixture. The best way to achieve these three things is DIY, right? Fortunately Lindsey Adelman has a great You Make It series up on her site to make a five bulb version so I wasn’t completely on my own. I strayed from the instructions and doubled the size by adding 10 bulbs. And most notably, they still work, one year later.
