This is my second creation from the mahogany stash (click here for the first). I built this lamp for my sisters 50th birthday present. The whole thing started out as a single board about four feet long x 7 inches wide x 1.5 inches thick. I first re sawed the board into three 1/4 inch thick strips. I then cut 9 inch wide sections out of each one, and carefully marked them so that I could later book-match them. The book-matching worked well, and you can’t really see the glue lines at all. The circular holes were covered with a 1/8” thick fiberglass sheeting material. I like the cross hatching effect that it displays when illuminated.
