What an eye catcher! Nice work! I wonder what it would look like with a red lamp in it!

I like it a lot.

Good thing the light cord doesn’t allow it to rotate. It could drive you a little crazy.

Nice work.

WOW & DOUBLE WOW..this is awesome. Thank you so much for sharing it. I would never guess one could bend pine. (I make shaker oval boxes and have never attempted it & would never believe it could be done..)

Goriak, this is really nice! I really like the shadow patterns this creates. Could you provide some more construction details? I would really like to know how the wood is bent using that jig you showed.

Mathew Nedeljko and all who is interesting in how the wood is bent using that jig
I used woodblocks to deliver pressure to joints.
This detail on picture wasn’t steamed so it has some harshness.
PUR glues are good for this project.
