The original idea was a finished lamp people could simply order, but when the option of creating a non-assembled puzzle reared it's ugly head.. I thought it had to be! I wanted to spend the extra time perfecting the construction so you only had to use the bare minimum amount of glue. Inside, there are pieces that build a rind around the top and lock in the layers you see on the outside at the right distance apart from each other. Around the model, there are other various pieces that also lock together where glue isn't needed.
I have plans to continue this design into a larger version with more lights. Stay tuned on this project!
