I wanted an easy to make modern desk lamp that had some unusual flair. In this case, it was the downward pointing ridges.

Made of mahogany. Uses an inexpensive LED puck light.

See the video!

I’m giving out the cutlist:

To fasten the top on, you could always use magnets..

This is a cool little project! Thanks for sharing!

Great looking lamp. I hope to do mine in Teak with a Gaboon top and bottom. Thanks for such a creative touch.

Nice design, was not expecting those backing boards to be the pieces that hold it all together. Magnets (as someone else mentioned) or dowels to hold the top on are definite options, I’ll probably end up making this later on :D
