Laser Cut Lamp

I have designed a laser cut lamp after being inspired by the Spore floor lamp from Alienology
Here it is below, the 16 3/4 inch slats and two central rings are cut from a piece of 1/8 inch maple veneer plywood. I also laser engraved the date and my name onto one slat (concealed by a piece of electrical tape and a blurry lens). I bought a light socket on a cord at ACE hardware, spliced on a small switch, and added a bulb. The photo you see is with a half-chrome bulb, but the other photo is with a 24 watt fluorescent bulb. More photos and descriptions as well as the previous prototypes can be found on my blog here:
