Well, for what it's worth here it is. I found lamp parts at an architectural salvage store. I still have some soldering to do but I had to put it together to see how she looks. This was actually quite fun. Inside is a simple paper tube and an 11 watt compact flourescent light



VERY Nice Job...You can be proud of that one.

Cant wait to see the next project...

Thanks sass & pixie. I have enough old lamp parts for maybe 10 more if I can figure how to sell them.

Interesting request from my barber. He would like a reproduction of this antique barber pole. Kind of a tall order but I am thinking maybe pentagonal vase caps for the ends with brass rod supports and lit from within by a single tube or a light rope. Any ideas would be appreciated. dizzy.gif
Thx.

Bob the barber loves the stained glass barber pole. He has it lit 24/7. I must admit I've been driving by at night so I could see it. I know it's not a Tiffany window but it's my first installation outside my house!

Better than a Window. Lots of people do windows. How many do Barber Poles. You should be proud of that project. I would drive by it too, just for that warm fuzzy feeling... 8confetti.gif

Love the picture of Bob the barber and his barber pole; Both look great.

Thanks Wes. I have another put together and pieces cut for one more. Beyond that, I don't know if I can get the octogonal parts anymore. I have plans to bring one over to the Marvy Co in St. Paul. The only remaining barber pole manufacturer in the US. Want to nickel plate that one to give it more pizzazz.

Sluggo, I will remeasure my pattern and post them here.
