A rather hurried project for a family member.

Scrap wood stained with a mixture of two stains.

Last photo shows removable top to access fluorescent bulb.

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 am sure someone got really happy.
That is a really nice lamp and the fact it was made from scrap makes it even better.
Best thoughts,

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?

Smoke,

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.

Good luck.

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

bigfish,

Yes, I too, was attracted when I first saw this lamp.

Sending it to my grand daughter in Florida.

Thanks for your comment.
