We need some new lamps for our home and I am thinking of building a pair like the lamp in the following link:
I am thinking of building these using 1/2 inch ply. From the surface, the design looks pretty simple i.e. one small pyramid stacked on top of a bigger pyramid but somehow my mind is telling me it is not as simple as I think, specially the bevel angles. I can use any help I can get to design and build these.
My main question is: What would be the right bevel angle for all four sides of the pyramid. Is it still 45degrees as in case of a mitered box?
If you were to build it, how would you go about doing it? What jigs or fixtures would come in handy?
