Segmented Bowl Rock Oil Lamp, Let Your Light Shine

This is my first attempt at a Segmented Bowl, and wanted to add the oil lamp rock, just to see if I could, I liked the way it turned out and hope you enjoy it as well.

This is a personal experiment and is by No Means instructions on how to make an oil lamp, just how I made one. Be safe in your shop and use all safety guides instructed on Oil Fuel as well as Fire in the shop.





Special Thanks to all below for Inspiration, Knowledge and Insight to helping this project come to life
