This piece was made for an upcoming exhibition “create from a crate” it is made out of pallet timber and tasmanian Myrtle.

The lamp screeens have “kumiko” panels with the As-ah-no-ha pattern “washi” paper is glued onto the back of each press-fit panel. The lamp houses a LED light powered by 6xAA batteries. There is also a panel held by magnets on the bottom for replacing the batteries.

This piece has 16 staggered through-tenons, 6mm x 6mm.

nice work! I really like the through tenon idea. I made a couple lamps and struggled with how to join the corners. I came up with a mixed half-lap type of system, but i like this one a lot, maybe better.

How did you mill out the mortises, and how wide are they?

Very nice lamp! I’ve found a few Japanese lamps I would like to make myself. Where did you find the paper for the shades?
