We thought mixing materials (3d printed plastic with wood) would be fun for a lamp. The model doesn't need support material. Full build video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aOaOmsu6-A

Printer Brand:










Step 1: Print model

No supports needed

Step 2: Install lamp thread

Drill the hole with a 23/64" bit then screw the lamp thread in (included with this kit http://amzn.to/2z5i0zm)

Step 3: Cut out template

Be sure to print it at 100% scale. Test fit and adjust scale if needed.

Step 4: Wrap edges with copper tape

We used this copper tape: http://amzn.to/2z5pOBe

Step 5: Cut 1/8" thick plywood pannels

Cut a little outside the template with a bandsaw, then sand down precisely with a belt sander.

Step 6: Glue pannels in place

Step 7: Oil the wood pannels

Super satisfying

Step 8: Install lamp hardware and shade
