Red Oak Stained Glass Wall Sconces
This was a custom order to complement a customer's stained glass window based upon the Koa Stained Glass Wall Sconce we had made earlier. Here we have a non-traditional take on the classical stylings of Art Deco wall lighting built from Red Oak. The two side pieces are united with the bottom piece via lap joints and are secured to the back with wood screws. Each of these three pieces has a groove routed in to hold a beautiful piece of sea green/blue stained glass cut and ground at the top to emulate the shape of the wood. Enclosed in this structure is a long-life LED candelabra bulb, which is pre-wired to mount to a standard 4" open wall box. The back has an open slit at the center approximately 4" long, wide enough to be mounted on a standard wall box threaded pipe and secured tightly with a washer and nut (A brass washer and decorative nut are included. The metal wall box and threaded rod are not). This slit also allows plenty of space for the wiring to exit the back of the sconce and be attached to the in-wall wiring The stained glass sits freely in the grooves of the Red Oak and is easily removed for hanging the sconce and changing the light bulb when required. The natural sheen of the Red Oak in this project are enhanced with multiple coats of a hand rubbed oil and urethane satin finish. This sconce measures 16” tall x 8 1/2” wide x 6” deep.
