This is the different steps to realize the "Lampe de Chevet" designed with radials and done with the CNC router
What you need is some pieces of MDF wood in 3mm
* Circle parts: 1 sheet of 25cm * 25 cm
* Profil parts: 16 Radials made of 8 sheet of 25cm *25cm
* Electrical parts: you will need an electrical socket of less that 5.4cm diameter
This design is to be sitting next to you bed having the same volume than a classical Chevet Lamp

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: CNC the Different Parts of the Lamp
Please find the plans for the CNC machine, this can also be done with manual equipment if you do not have the required equipment
This can be realized in any material that is 3mm thin
I have realized that with the Zmorph SX 2.0, do not hesitate to tell me if this could be done with other equipment too
Step 2: Assemble the Different Parts All Together
To assemble the parts you will need first to sand a bit all the parts and then fix the electrical support on the middle circle. once this is done then start turning around and assemble the profile one after the other.
Please note that I didn't use any wood glue for this lamp as the bulb need to be accessible in case of replacement
but this is up to you to glue for example half of the profiles
Step 3: Enjoy the Segmented Light Generated When the Light Is On
The once everything is assembled you will be able to enjoy a segmented light that would give the best ever effect in the room.
As this is MDF do not forget that you can easily put some paint on it and have some fun with a colorful lighting too
