This is for my wife as a first anniversary gift… the shade is rice paper. The wood will be walnut.
Finally got the hang of sketchup. turns out the key is to make everything into components otherwise it really really sucks! anyway, i made this design, inspired by some other folks’ lamp designs i found.
The joinery is essentially all lap joints of some sort or another. Frame members are all 3/8” or 1/4” other than the obviously thicker pieces, so relatively thin stuff for me. I’m wondering how I’m going to be able to plane/sand/scrape those. The top is removable for getting at the lightbulb. Here are some pics with and without the rice paper lampshade. I still have to figure out what sort of bulb i want in there and the proper fittings for it.
i can also send anyone the SKU file, but i dont have a way to post it here.
