Adjustable Floor Lamp

When building the lamp on page 22, you won't need much hardware at all. Besides a handful of woodworking screws, all you need is a 1/4"-20 brass insert, a 1"-dia. cherry wood knob (61665 from Rockler), and a short length of threaded rod. All of these items should be available at a home center or a woodworking store, or the insert and wood knob can be ordered through the sources listed below.

The electrical supplies are also available locally at hardware stores and lamp shops. In fact it's often packaged as a complete kit. However, there are additional sources listed at right that offer lamp supplies.

Wiring a lamp is pretty basic, and the instructions should be included in your hardware kit. Still, if you have any reservations or questions, don't hesitate to find someone who can guide you through the process.
