Here's the new chandelier, hand crafted in its entirety from cherry wood (except for the innards, the metal conduit and wiring). He added a ceiling medallion while the scaffolding was erected. There's a soft "down light" incorporated into the bottom turned portion of the fixture, I didn't get that in the photo above.
Here is a closer shot of the fixture, in all of its hand-rubbed glory!
Yep, this is it... just what we wanted, lovingly made to order.
Let there be light. And there was light. And it was good.
Life is Good!
