Bamboo lamp. End Grain shade idea came from Laguna Bamboo. As always I welcome constructive criticism, positive or negative.

i always enjoy your work

you put your best into it
and it shows

well done
how thin is the shade itself
to be able to pass light like that

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.

Wauuu, the light look like the sun going down, and all the different lights comming through that veneer, it’s so beautiful, kind of meditative.
Nice work also, yes you sure care for every detail.
I’m impressed.
Best thoughts,

The light creates some interesting (and unexpected) colors. Nice stand design too!
