Robie House Lighting Sconce

Robie House Lighting Sconce

I made the sconces based on the Robie House dining room sconces.  First I did CAD drawings of the original sconce and built 2 of them to prove the design (first photo below).  Then I built the version I designed as you see in the photos.  I made some out of red oak and some out of Honduran mahogany.  I have designed and built many different Prairie Style lighting fixtures and furniture, but the Robie sconce was always my favorite light fixture ever.
