I have used pine, yellow cedar, and douglas fir for shades, plane wood as thin as you can, then sand thinner, hold up to lite and wow.On mine the top of the shade is open and the bulb was about 3” away from shade, it`s like a chimney.And I`ve used 100 watt bulbs and left on for over 24hrs with no fires.
The lamps look great on or off, the more wood grain colors the better.Also hard to take photo of, try it you`ll like.
