I've been working on various carpentry projects throughout this past year. This is my first lamp; lighting's fascinating for a photographer, being able to build lights might be a dangerous specialization of pastimes. This one is composed of dowels, scrap wood, and tracing paper. It probably needs another layer or two of paper to diffuse more and/or a lower wattage bulb to shine less. NB, Home Depot here doesn't sell anything lower than around 550 lumens in CFL; I think I'd want half of that for this table lamp.
