The shade is approximately 1/16” thick. The veneer is very fragile. I backed this veneer up with 1/8” glass. I figured it would protect from heat, as well as protect the veneer from damage.

Great lamp and perfect execution, as usual. How stable is the base with a passel of kids running around?

The lamp is very stable. I tried knocking it over by bumping it and it stood it’s ground. Anything will fall over with kids around. LOL. This lamp is as stable as a normal store bought floor lamp in my opinion.

Shameless plug since I work for one of their divisions, but Bamboo Hardwoods has all sorts of plywood and veneers.
