Japanese Wall Light Sconce
Project by Jason Musso entered in the Woodworkers Source "Wall Art" Woodworking Contest 2015
True to traditional Japanese woodworking techniques, this light sconce is held together only by the integrity of its joinery with wedges and dowels.
It’s even impressive by the numbers:
- 48 lap joints
- 24 bridle joints
- 24 miter joints
- 4 mortise and through-tenons, and
- 10 dowel plugs and wedges
The bulb inside produces a gentle warm glow from behind the mappa burl veneer, and the wiring is entirely concealed within the mounting bracket.
Finish: Tried & True Original Wood Finish
