I think I’ve decided on a lamp for my 1st anniversary gift. I wanted something sort of in the area of arts & crafts, FLW, and japanese designs. The shade would be rice paper – 1st anniversary tradition after all.
I really like Randy Price’s design in walnut here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/12365
but wanted something like that crossed with a japanese lantern… sort of. I havent decided completely.
I drew up this quick and dirty sketchup model to help me decide on overall shape, dimensions, and proportions.
I like the rectangular look of it. The shade will be framed in dark wood, and might have a pattern based on Randy’s across the face of each side.
