Some trial samples of shade lamp accessories, made of oak and beech, 11-12.5 cm diameter , 4 cm thick – two types for two different glass bases. There is yet to decide how to turn cable up, from the bottom, back to top surface…
Finish wood oil.

Nice lamp, Ivan. Get a diamond core drill to drill the glass and use it under water if possible.

Cheers, Jim

Cool ”shades” maj...

Would have been easier to take them inside, out of ”sunlight”.

I agree with Jim on the diamond drill. Or just let it run on the outside.

Overall nice little project, next the shades will be out of wood

Good job Ivan. A diamond drill bit will work well, just don’t force it.

Forget diamonds maj... an engagement ring is too late after kids.

Get a small jar, put some wire in it… water it and let it grow to your required size.
I did it here in downtown Churchill… though still waiting for it to grow… must be the clay soil!

It’s a pity you couldn’t run a rechargeable battery unit with LED lighting Ivan so you didn’t have to have power leads coming out.
Just a thought!

Nice lamp Ivan! Forget the cord make it run on a battery pack!
