Nice. Has an Arts & Crafts style to it. I would have used rice paper on the side panels to diffuse the light maybe and keep the top the way you have it so the heat can escape.

Thank you for the nice comments. Lee and Karson: miss you guys, we should get together again. The design was adapted from PopWoodworker. I enjoy recycling working material, and the option of using glass was base in the fact that I had it in my “stuff” pile and it fits with the style. The lamp is a CFL low wattage so the heat emission is minimal.

Interesting… looks similar to my lantern night lights. I’ve thought about putting a glass panel in the top of mine.

Have your say...
