Spent a few weeks over xmas designing this lamp idea that had been rolling around in my head for a couple years. Just added a few new CNC toys to the garage to make it possible to get the detail I wanted, but it could also be made by scrollsaw work if you had enough time on your hands.

The kit is built around a hexagon pattern, 6 sides that come together and held with a few pics. Glue isn’t required, but adds some stability. Added a simple lamp wiring kit with a switch to finish off the design.

Working on the REAL project coming soon.. take 6 of these and put them together in a full size chandelier. Will keep you posted!

That is AWESOME!! I don’t know if you’re aware, but there’s a place for you in the model railroading community.

That’s fascinating, and a really original thought. A chandelier will be a thing of true gobsmackingness. You’ve also done some great research on Gothic traditions and shapes. I’m sitting here just a little envious, but I’ll get over it with the help of a few chisels and a plane.

The shade really isn’t my style, but great craftsmanship.
