Made from Mahogany and stained Very dark to give it an old look then finished with tung oil. It has brass tacks holding in the paper insert. This is one of my more favorite projects. I like doing things that are used for a purpose other than to just sit there. It gives you light! It’s from an old WOOD magazine plan so I didn’t come up with this one. I did change it to the paper style baffle though. The plan called for white acrylic inserts cut at an angle and I thought that would look really cheap. Before I had it on the legs I was going to just have it hanging from the ceiling. It was a great IDEA but I didn’t have anywhere to hang it so I added the legs so that it could sit on a table ( also not my idea). The last photo is what it might have looked like. It would be really cool to make three of them and hang them right next to each other at three different height levels. Anyways, Thanks for looking.
