I bought this design on Etsy but later found the exact same design on Thingiverse for free. I created my own “leaf” elements for it, and just used theirs as a size reference.
The pattern didn’t have a size reference, so I just sized it by the slots, making it so it would work for 1/8" Baltic birch. That came out about the size the description gave, but the hole for the light is pretty small. I stuck an Ikea pendant light in it, but had to disassemble the socket wiring to put the cord through.
EDIT: I measured the finished lamp. It’s approximately 13" in diameter and 8-9" high.
I sanded and finished each piece with blue stain and spray lacquer. I now have multiple sensitive spots on my fingertips where I accidentally sanded myself, and it took freaking forever. I think on the next one I will finish the wood FIRST, and then cut out the lamp.
This is beautiful. I love lights…and this is amazing.
Wow, so are you and @evansd2 just going back and forth to see who can design the coolest stuff?
Psht, I lost that contest a long time ago.
Ehhh, I just saw your Beast creation and that was pretty intense. Maybe she’s beat you a handful of times, but I bet it goes in your favor from time to time!
I can’t hold a candle to his inlays and butt joint stuff.
hey man, be careful about how you refer to his butt joint stuff.
As always. Impressive work!
Any and all references to my butt joint stuff are welcome.
That last picture just makes me go wow.
Turned out soooo nice. Wow!
Looks awesome! well done!
Amazing, as always! It’s really a lovely piece, but I have to wonder how you are gonna dust all those little pieces?
Very nice lamp,I have been looking for some blue stain, do you mind me asking where you purchased the stain from?
Great googley-moogley! Any of us can upload a file and press print, but this shows the result of adding talent and hard work to the process.
Just print a replacement, of course!
