Well done!

What is the shade made of, and how many lights are in this fixture?

l love your lamp , nice job. Curious about the angles in the shade as to what degree you would have set your saw at? Again nice work.

Thanks for the nice comment

The 1/2 laps on this lamp are cut at 39 degrees and the miters are cut at 24 1/2 degrees.

Nice job on the lamp. This was actually my first piece of Arts & Crafts. Did you buy the kit or copy the article from Wood Magazine?

Hey Paul….I did use the plan from Wood Magazine. I like the arts and crafts plans they have. I have made a number of items using their plans. I am not a very good designer so I have to use plans..step by step
Do you have a place where you go to find plans?

So far all my projects have been from Wood’s plans, lamp, end table, ottoman, prairie sofa, Morris bowed arm chair, barristers bookcase. My last project was a A&C style sideboard which is also the first project I designed using sketchup with details I’ve seen on other pieces but couldn’t find all together. Keep up the great work!
