Modern Desk Lamp
Build this modern-looking desk lamp that’ll have people asking, “How’d you make that shade?”
With its round shade and simplistic design, this desk lamp offers a good amount of woodworking, in a small, easy-to-build project. You might think the construction of the round, “louvered” lampshade using common woodworking tools is far-fetched. But the shade is so simple to build, you may find that you can turn out a couple of these desk lamps in a single weekend. The trick is to start with a couple of squared-up blanks. You then cut all of the joinery before “bending” the shade halves together to form a round shade. It may sound difficult now, but the plans will walk you through the entire process. The remainder of the parts for the lamp are just as easy to make. And because of the small size of this project, it’s the perfect place to showcase some attractive wood.
