Here is an Arts & Crafts lamp I made from scraps leftover from another project. Used amber mica for the shade. The compound angles made this the most difficult piece I have ever made.

That looks tricky, great job. Where do you get the amber mica?

I would also like to know where you purched the mica. Great job.When I couldn’t find a source for mica, I gave up and purchased a metal and oak lamp. Thanks

Nice lamp, I’m a fan of arts & crafts. I like the attention to detail using 1/4 sawn white oak grain on all exposed surfaces.

That is the most beautiful lamp. Makes me wish I used table lamps. Love that mica! Could one use stained glass instead?

BigIke: I don’t have any plans. I made it up as I went along. I had a picture from the internet for inspiration.
Pintodeluxe et al: I got the mica from Woodworkers Supply over the internet.
Vicki: I think you could use stained glass. Be careful of the extra weight for the shade supports.
Thanks all for your comments.
