Special presentation gift
The presentation gift of this bespoke Drum Table was made by the Regimental Sergeant Major and Warrant Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess, 1 Scots. to Lt. Col. B. Wrench of The Royal Scots Borderers on 4th July 2013.
The Warrant Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess commissioned me to make the floor lamp. I had to make alterations to the side drum and fit the engraved glass “drumskin”. An unusual project and not as straight forward as it appears, as it was slightly oval. The LED light inside the drum illuminates the “skin”. It shows up the commemorative dedication and the badge of the Royal Scots Borderers on the engraved glass very well. I used an LED bulb as it would not create the same build up of heat as a more traditional bulb.
I fitted the drum shell on a base of Sapele wood, which raises it from the floor and allows the electric cable a bit of movement. A floor switch makes turning the lamp on and off very easy. There is more than enough room on the glass table top for a couple of drams. Cheers!
