There has to be an easier way to make a lampshade. Looks beautiful athough, after all his hard work, the poor man just got loads of comments about the wood he wasted. In fact he uses all the wood.
Rikki Berger, a woodturner/inventor/teacher with 35 years at the lathe says ‘I hope you enjoy a small glimpse into making one of my shades.’
‘Please before you write a negative comment about the waste of wood, please realize , this is fast growing pine, it had already been cut down to be used as firewood, the centre of the log is sap wood and is very poor quality, and all the wood chips are reused in another way, for heating, or in the garden.’
