Improved “Stars” table lamp

The prototype was a bit chunky for my taste. I made this one slimmer. I glazed the sides with frosted PVC which diffuses the light nicely. I left the top unglazed so warm air can escape. With an 11W compact fluorescent bulb, the lamp doesn’t get noticeably warm after several hours use.

The lamp measures 26x10x10cm.

The lamp is laser cut 6mm poplar ply. It’s all held together with wedges and would pack flat for posting.

Prototype table lamp

This the first version of a lamp design. It isn’t quite right and the second version will be narrower. I also found the large openings make for harsh light and so I’ll glaze the next version with something that will diffuse the light.
