Pair of quick lite floor lamps

Toby and I decided to finally make our floor lamps. CQ founts, 1/8 tubing to extend the fuel tube, 1" emt for the handle and quick lite burners. Toby went with a mica chimney and I used my homemade 220 holder. Surprisingly they are pretty stable. Tobys https://i.postimg.cc/FRLZpMyZ/PXL_20211020_1351...
