Dear members,
I need help on modeling a lamp post. I am currently using LW 7.5 DE. Tutorials or other links are welcomed as well.
Thank you.

1)Get references from as many angles as you can(google for lamp post images)

2)Create a box and place it where you want(I'd suggest at the base but it's your choice)

3)Extrude the general shapes(meaning you do the whole body without the little details)

4)Add egderings along the parts that need refining and scale them accordingly

5)Add the rest of the details using either extrude,Cut/connect edges

6)Make it unique

If you're not satisfied,restart and you'll do it better this time for sure.
