  • Making a Wooden Lampshade

    I thought this was interesting.

    I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

    Very interesting. I wonder what the total project time was.

      Being cut out of a raw piece of wood what is going to keep it from twisting out of shape.

        Im sure being turned out of wet timber,it will surely split as the heat from the light bulb dries the wood,ive seen other turners use this method with the light up too the wood while turning before,they were making bowls though.

            Good skills and nice result but it was a shame that 9/10 of that lovely piece of wood was thrown away

              Could he have cut a deep well and left more of the center portion intact and then set about separating the shade? It would make it harder to thin the walls and I'd suspect even at that point he would be close to losing 40-50% of the wood. Even with fretwork you can lose +50% of the wood. You might get more projects but your waste wood might still be high. Maybe he makes his own OSB boards or was running real low on kindling.
