Step 1: Making of the Frame.
The first step is to make the frame of this lamp.
Because this lamp require a mirror and a 2-way glass, it is going to be little heavy and delicate and therefore it require a robust frame, preferably made out of wood. Once the frame is made, cover it up with paint or fabric like leatherette.
Step 2: Frame Assembly
Once the wooden frame is built. Attach a mirror at the bottom of the frame (on the far side).
And attach the 2-way glass on the top of the frame. Care should be taken to ensure that the reflective or polished side of the 2-way glass should be facing inside of the frame, so that it is able to reflect the light towards the mirror at the bottom.
Step 3: Assembling the Light
Attach the LED/Light in between the mirror and the 2-way glass so that it keeps reflecting back and forth between the two. The 2-way glass at the top should be attached in such a way that it should be easily taken out and assembled back effortlessly for the ease of repair and maintenance.
