The shade only was made of 360 pieces, glued one by one and raw by raw within two days.

Hey Pete, the stand was my own design that came in my dream one night ! And then the segmented shade was a natural result of if you started a project with wood, you had to finish it with wood. My wife went to a second hand shop and came back with 5 nice paper shades, $1 dollar each, They were all rejected and I made my own design.

Sam, you are one of the Wonders of the Planet!

How thick was your Shade right after glue-up (ave. thickness)

How thick / thin was it After you turned it?

Had to be super thin to let Light go through it… How thin was it?

How often did you Hone / sharpen your Shade turning tools while turning it?

Just awesome… as I said, you are a Wonder!

C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S !!

Thank you for posting it.
