Short Wood

These were the first lamps I had fabricated using the scraps as previously mentioned. The 3/4″ thick plywood scraps were cut into sequentially smaller squares to make the best use of the surface area available. Starting with a 7″ x 7″ square, scrap pieces were divided into smaller and smaller squares to create the basis for the spiraling pyramid shape.

After many hours of shaping and finishing, these inSpire lamps were finished with custom made lampshades using scraps of 1/4″MDF painted white and backed with a black laminate. These pieces measure 17″ tall and use a 13w compact fluorescent bulb to minimize power usage.
