2012: One of my sidetracks. I picked up this torchere at a crazy price, with the thought of turning it into a reading lamp for my lounge, although the top and raising spindle were badly damaged and it needed re-building. . This is now finished and you can see the many parts needed to make it. One of the hardest things was finding a piece of tube for the centre spindle, something that would have been easy a decade ago is now with our declining industry not so easy.
