Steve’s day job for over 20 years has been as a landscape architect for Sebago Technics (www.sebagotechnics.com), an engineering firm founded in the early 80s by Walt Stinson, a Maine native and really swell guy. Walt has retired and Steve was asked to make a display case for the very first piece of survey equipment Walt purchased. Steve has an aversion to things without function so he came up with the idea for a lamp/display case. Now, we don’t mean to malign surveyors here, but you know that if anybody can take something as mundane as a transit and make it beautiful and interesting, it’s Steve. The lamp is made from birch, cherry and yew, with a mica lampshade and pine cone finial. The beautiful stained glass was custom made by Pat Almlov. The lamp is constructed so the transit can be removed – in case Walt wants to survey something in his retirement! Let us know what you think!
