If you’re fortunate enough to own a billiard table, then you almost owe it to yourself to have a custom lamp above it. Of course you can hire it out, but you’re motivated, and that’s why you’re here. : ) In this 6 page build package I walk you through all of the details needed to construct this lamp fixture yourself. Our table is 8 feet long and this lamp was built with our table in mind but is suitable for shorter or longer tables as well.
The dimensions of the lamp fixture are 39-3/4″ long, 17″ wide, and 6-1/4″ tall. All dimensions are in standard units. The building plan is color coded throughout to help the builder keep an easy visual connection on where and how the pieces go together. The plan package for this custom lamp includes the following items:
- A detailed list of raw materials as well as consumables.
- A visual cut list of all the raw material which is dimensioned and laid over standard size lumber for easy and efficient material usage with minimal scrap.
- About 12 easy to follow, detailed steps walking you through cutting, shaping, joining, and finishing the project.
- Fully dimensioned CAD diagrams to eliminate any guess work.
In addition to this purchased item I have provided a summarized video of this build on my YouTube channel found HERE.
This project requires a thickness planer and a biscuit jointer. Keep in mind if you do not have a biscuit jointer, you can reinforce the angled joints by building small gussets to strengthen the joint.
