That’s interesting. When I think of wood, I don’t think of lamp shade. I think of table, or chair, or lamp base. I don’t think of translucent covering for a light emitting apparatus. Clearly I don’t get out much. At first I was alittle concerned, that seems like an awful waste of wood, but then I realized that it’s not really that big a piece, and all those shavings probably made really nice kindling for some wood burning stove. It looks nice, but it’s not so nice that I would want something like that in my home. I’m sharing because it’s the nice thing to do.
