This set of photos was taken in November of 2013
The location was at my home in Bethesda, Maryland.
The "Take It!" came to me after having had these Wagon Wheel Hubs in my home for many years. They were made into lamps by my Brother, Jeff, who lives in Arizona and came by them without
much difficulty back when he conceived the idea for their use as suspended from chain lights. It seems our family has a history of being facinated with lights and either making lamps out of
unusual items to give as gifts or simply giving useful lights when they think they will be helpful to a family member. We were all pleasantly surprised when he gave these out for
Christmas gifts one year.
The initial photo was the best I could do in providing a clue. I looked at the prospect of adding just a little bit more surface in the clue photo and thought that it would give it away.
The After Take: No one was able to guess what the item was by looking at the initial photo. With more of the hub shown - they got it. Everyone liked the effect the light has when lit
with the light being focused outward through the holes that originally contained spokes for the wheel.
Thanks to everyone that made a guess at this.
By the way - coming up with a label for this was fun. Things like " what goes around - comes around " " Out of the Rut " stuff like that - so the one I chose was about the
easiest - lol.
Wishing you all the very best,

I would have never guessed that in the entirety of my life. At least it is wood.

I didn't even bother guessing because I knew this was going to be a really difficult one. I couldn't even come up with anything when I first looked at it.

This lamp is seriously very cool. Would fit perfectly in a western style pub or tavern.
