Intro: Wood & Paper Shoji Floor Lamp
This is a lamp I made as a gift for my mom. She has an oriental themed dining room, and this fit in well. It was inspired by a similar lamp which I saw in Benihanas. For the frame I used 3/4 pine stock, and 1' x 1' x 1/2" squares as the shelves/lamp base (bought as is from a craft store). 1cm x 1/2cm basswood (also from a craft store) makes up the lattice, and mulberry paper for the shade. I used glue and thin nails to assemble it. Also electric stuff too. I was going to make a full instructable, but I didn't take pics in the process, plus it started getting really long, and to be honest, there are probably lots of better ways to do it than the way I did it. If you have any specific questions on how I did anything feel free to ask, and I will try to respond. Thanks!
