I like it, looks really good, and the use of scraps makes it even better.

Thanks for your comment, Martin.
I may rework this since I’m not exactly pleased with the detali.
There is a second one in the works.
Have a great day.

I’ve been thinking about making a couple of these as bedside lamps. I like what you have done and have possibly added to my thoughts. What did you use as the white paper where the light would shine through, rice paper? Any hints or suggestions?

I used parchment paper which withstands very high oven temperatures when baking.
Of course the florescent light generates very little heat
It’s glued to the backside of the four lattice frames which in turn are glued to the four upright posts.

I have always wanted to build something like this. I think they are attractive as well as functional. Thank you for sharing.
