I've built a few of these lamps for myself in the past for at home and for at my cabin. Recently I had a customer that wanted not only a custom rod but also a lamp built for his cabin. So I've been collecting the parts over the past few weeks and just finished building the lamp for him. Hope he enjoys it.
