My daughter recently started college for Architecture. One of her first semester projects was a lamp that transforms, she chose to make a lamp that would open and close like flower petals. I think the idea needs a little refinement but it's her first ever solo design and woodworking project and I'm very proud of her. The petals are fir veneer attached with short brass machine screws. She plans on refining the concept and maybe selling a few next year to help pay her tuition.
