I made it of scrap wood, some recycled hardware and Japanese rice paper “kinwashi”. Inspired after visiting some Japanese museum/garden. My family loves it. Washi is amazing! It gives really nice touch to this kind of projects.

Nice lamp Vlad. I was thinking of making something like this (1/3 of it, anyway) for a stairwell to my mew. I was going to cheat, though and use sandblasted acrylic.

Very nice. Where did you purchase the Japanese rice paper “kinwashi”? Also, how did you attach it to the wood?Roger

Looks great. I would love to do some Asian style lamps for the house, but my wife does not like that style. I guess I will have to make some for the shop.
I would also be interested in where you got the paper and how you attached it.
Keep up the good work.

Carter Sexton store, found them on internet, plenty of others in there. Glued by Tacky glue, avoid yellow ones. You can also wet the paper once attached to frame, then it drys and becomes very tense, like a drum, really cool feature, read more “how to’s” before you do it..One more hint, I went to my local store, wanted to see this paper first, touch it, feel it. Then purchased since liked it. You probably should do the same, they offer a lot of choice.

Wow! You’ve really exploded on the lumberjocks sceene. Your last/first three posts have been outstanding.Nice job! I really like it! I’ve never made a lamp before. I’m not sure why, but I guess being a mechanical engineer, all things electrical scare me. Anyway, how do you know what a safe distance from the paper to the light bulb is? Is there a formula or minimum distance or did you just feel it with your hand and ensure the paper wasn’t getting hot?

Wonderful lamp, just perfect. Nice design.

No formulas, I guessed on size. I used warm and bright white spiral CFL bulbs, they aren’t getting too hot. I was more concerned about the wire inside the wooden groove, but now its proved to be safe by time:)

Here you go, some more pictures.. It’s funny though, now almost 3 years later I feel kind of shame by showing this stuff. Obviously, the quality is low, materials are cheap. I guess its about a time to build something better. BTW, I am moving to a new house in a month with new workshop, hurray!!
