Happy Friday Eve Everyone!
I spent some time prototyping a new design tonight. I wanted it to look more like the Andon Laterns with through tenons. It has 50 pieces and is completely snap together. I used PG Medium Draftboard for this version. The actual piece will be in Cherry or Walnut and have rice paper behind the screens. It is large enough for a low-wattage light to be inserted. It stands 10.5" high and is 8.5" square.
I have always been a woodworker so for me I like to design things that utilize the same aesthetic as I used in my actual lumber pieces.
I hope you like! I will post the finished piece when I get the wood in to produce it.
Here is a picture of how the through tenons work. I know…I tend to over-engineer. LOL
