Please note that our lamp bases are listed separately as each piece of timber has it’s own unique characteristics. For instance, some may have knots and cracks.
This lamp base has been made using a piece of PRIME BLACK WALNUT. EUROPEAN OAK. In other words, it is made using top grade timber, which is sourced from sustainable forests and FSC certified. It is a beautifully rich chocolate colour with a straight grain and course texture.
We individually make every LAMP BASE to order. Our first step is to prepare the timber, which involves cutting, planing, routing and sanding the timber. After that, we drill through the centre of the base to make way for the cabling. The next step is to seal the timber with a clear wax coating. We use clear wax as it does not change the appearance of the timber, it merely acts as a protective barrier from absorbing natural oils in the skin. The next stage in the making process is to assemble the cable, which involves fitting the rocker switch and plug and then fit the bulbholder to the base and cable. Last, but not least the lamp base is tested to ensure it meets the current regulatory requirements for electrical equipment.
All lamp bases are boxed before being packaged for despatch. Wherever possible we use paper or cardboard packaging. Of course we have a duty to do our bit for the environment, whilst at the same time ensuring our products arrive undamaged. Because it is sometimes necessary to use alternative packaging, all of it can be recycled so please do your bit too.

It should be noted that these lamp bases should not be placed close to a direct heat source, for instance on top of a wood burning stove. Equally important, do not place it close to a water source. An occasional dry dusting should be all that is required.
