I had a few leftover scraps of decorative polycarbonate wall panels which were used for a bath enclosure. Combined with some scrap oak from a previous project, I combined them into a Japanese lamp design that I had seen from previous posts on Lumberjocks. Only thing I had to purchase was rice paper backing which I adhered to the inside of each cut panel using spray adhesive. Added a 25 watt fluorescent bulb and it gives a great subtle accent light for the bathroom. Finished with a transtint Golden Brown dye to match existing woodwork, 2 coats of shellac, and a few coats of spray lacquer.

Great looking lamp! I’ll bet it looks very nice when it’s lit up!
