A little zero clearance sled on the sliding table to cut the half laps for the lamp base, a case of sticking some mdf to the fence with double stick tape. Not sure I'd get anything done around the shop without double stick tape. Here's where you get it:
After roughing out, the handy router plane steps in to fine tune the depth of the half laps.
Some creative routing, like riding a roller coaster.
Shop made dowelling jig to help position parts.
Free-handing the doweling on the mortiser.
Joinery into the base.
Fine tuning a rather awkward stick.
