I acquired the Jack Howe prints years ago, and due to some other events in my life, never got around to building my own version of the chair using these. However, the time has become available to restart my woodworking hobby, and a pair of these chairs along with a Lewis coffee table are in the work...

Years ago I acquired the Jack Howe prints for the "butterfly chair" from the University of Minnesota. They are great, but as mentioned before, they are not the real 1946 chair design. And in seeing the brand new release from the Foundation on 5/2/18 franklloydwright.org/cassina-frank-lloyd-foundatio...

Thanks for the update. I now won't bother trying to see any if original Suntop plans have this light present, but rather will scour the pictures I have found and those posted in links here, as well as any others on the interweb, and see if I can recreate in general this design. I would probably swit...

You are right. I guess I was confusing the design that I saw before from the house plans (the one with the wood slats) and this glass pane one. I was thinking that the bulbs were in the middle of the light, centered around the 3rd pane up, and the glass somehow surrounded the bulbs. I see that the b...

So does anyone know if the design shown in the plans was created? It looks interesting as well. I have seen these plans before, but not the bottom left view showing how the light was worked into the construction of what looks like the sidewall of the terrace. Beautiful incorporation. It reminds me a...

Not sure how I missed that when I did a search of the forum. Thank you for the link, as well as the contacting of the owner. If there are any plans or detailed photos, I would be most appreciated. I would love to make something like this in my shop, but don't know exactly where to start. Thanks! Brian

Suntop Home Ceiling Light

I have always been facinated by a particular ceiling light in the Suntop that I happened to see in photo from an online article about restoring one of the Suntop units.

EBAY!!!

Based on the responses to some recent posts that happen to deal with ebay listings, I was reluctant to post this message, but I feel that the people who frequent this chat room will appreciate the legitimacy of these listings. Of special note is the Family Handyman magazine that fits well with some ...
