Been awhile but here’s a project I just completed completely made from scrap.
My version of a Japanese Lamp.
18”H x 8”Sq. Main frame Cherry and the Kumiko panels are Purple Heart Frames with pine and Cherry inlays.
Rice paper for the bottom panels and Mice behind the top.
and yes, it does have a hidden drawer.

Looks great!
Kumiko pulls it all together and that roof is really neat (bamboo skewers?)

That is truly beautiful! I love the Kumiko. Really hope to give it a try someday…

Nice workmanship, good design. Like the roof. What is the light source?

The light is an LED candle, really just meant to be a nightlight.

I really like the style of this lamp. May I ask where or what inspired your design?
