    Finish product : what would you use for the finish product , as on cherry or ebony? I like usually oil product but I did some tests with gloss varnish and It is quite good , because all the yellow and black base is quite glossy.

    I have lot of fun to create the shade , by doing a lot of tests and differents tries of what I will put on the 8 sections .
    Will put some photos.

      Here is somes of my inserts , in ebony , and I put to reinforce at the back of the bird (chickadee ) a MDF with real wood on each side , total of .096" , because the cuttings was very delicates ! Still have some sanding on a couple of them!

      Not finish yet of cutting inserts , I have lot of fun to create all kind of set-up !

      So here they are.....

      the bird as on the base ...

        Really nice work! I personally prefer a Semi gloss or Satin finish. The only time I may use a gloss finish is on some wood turnings.

          Bonjour !
          After a couple of tests and tries, here are some progress, your advises are welcome !
          The finish product is not yet on the panel, will wait after the final assembly , with the adhesive. Some sanding and final touch are also to be done on some!
          Here they are:

          IMG_3307.thumb.jpg.28b5688eff2065b066e3be0bd774e3b1.jpg
          And the next is not yet decided ( almost ) with or without the wood bird
          without

          and finaly what do you think of my flower transformed in a butterfly
          after a couple of cutting

          IMG_3311.thumb.JPG.f174a0a01dfd176a2da58f45d74bc4be.JPG
          Very satisfied of my progress, have a lot of fun to create, choose, testing all kind of items to be inserted.

          P.S. All the yellow marquetries will have light coming out.

              Y​​our advise concerning the look ! Sometime I feel that I am putting to much on the panel , and next day....it's OK !

              Do you think I should put all panels with only intarsia cuttings as this one ,

              IMG_3305.thumb.jpg.11805c75888534b44414e58686b7988e.jpg

              or adding some of the 8 panels (or most ) with flowers or birds cutted in darker wood as those ones

                My first test of assembling with all the patterns , to see how it look like !

                Some backgrounds at the back of open pattern have to be insert, do not know yet for the color , probably white so the light may come out.

                Not sure yet if I will leave the patterns which are a bit too big compare to the others.

                Also I have to make : 1e , the top of the shade which will be black or almost as the wood used, and 2e, the bottoms of each pallet with a black pattern.

                What do you think , and be honest.... ....!

                  It's looking pretty good! The design is good. Problems I see is the lack of light able to "escape" from the shade and having a top piece to attach to the harp of the lamp. While you can simply cut a piece to match the inside of the top of the light, it will cut down on the light even more. Your options are limited due to the height of the shade. For a lock nut you would have to use the existing or cut out one on the scroll saw with a nut in-bedded in the bottom of the wood. For instance a bird silhouette attached to a round disk pedestal with a nut glued or inset on the bottom.

                  My major concern is the light "throw". You will only have light really coming from beneath and only a small amount from the patterns. It will look pretty neat with the room lights off, but it will be limited to pretty much a night light. As I look back on the original - that style throws out much more light. Perhaps enough to read by.

                  It will be neat to see how it does when you are finished.
                  Keep up the good work.

                    Merci Karl , your ideas are very good , but this lamp serve a an ambiance lamp or mood lamp, and if you are near , you can read next to it.

                    I am working on the top part which will be probably black with no light coming out , will see.

                    Presently , and it will be like that, there is a rod coming from the base and holding the lamp shade and the 2 bulbs , at the top. I just modified it this afternoon so the 2 bulbs will be at a different angle . As suggest I will put Led bulbs , so not much heat from them.
                    I could put also something inside the panels to reflect more light !

                    Next is testing the light coming out...

                      Hello lampshade fans ...😀

                      Finally , after a lot of tries and tests , after practicing a bit , I glued with wood glue the 8 panels with this bottle with a fine nose, and the result was perfect

                      And I did some tests to see how it look with a light on top of it ( the sanding is allready finished, lot of delicate

                      works...😛and to 320 ! )

                                At last ....tadam....!😁 After a couple of months...😉, pleasure, research, tests, , here is the lamp-shade finish!
                                Made with cherry for the 8 panels, and black walnut , ebony, and some marquetry yellow sheets at the back to get some yellow color as the base, and because the inside light was too much through the patterns.
                                Finish with Osmo Polyx oil , 2 layers after sanding till 320.

                                So here it is on daylight : https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zq6ms8x7p...ijkaNPJwa?dl=0

                                and on evening light from the lamp : https://www.dropbox.com/sh/t89oxlcmv...jOFikuQWa?dl=0

                                Very happy with the result, with almost same kind of nature as the base!

                                Thank for your support, and by reading and viewing some of your impressives pieces of all kind from I am still learning a lot!
