Finishing the Shade up

Thank you for coming back, we will finish up this post.

this is an UGLY stage!
all fluxy greasy numbers still on sight ...it isn't finished being soldered on the outside, but
lets try it on the base for size...
perfect!

scrub scrub and scrub again...using steel wool, dawn..scrub brush...sanding paper if needed
get it clean and smooth...then patina, rinse...and wax...
lots of elbow grease...or if you HAVE a fancy smancy buffer...fine go that route...

the lamp finished and lit!

here is a close up of the shade...

thank you for following along..

happy new year!
