The lamp is made of 30 individual slats ranging in length from 320mm to 278mm. I cut these out on a standard xTool D1 Pro 5w so I had to cut them out in 2 stages as all 30 together are too large for the working area of the D1. To do this you will need to set them to separate layers in XCS and set one to ignore while you cut the other layer.

 

I used oak veneered MDF but any wood can be used to give a different look to the finished lamp.

Step 2: Cut the support circles

I used 2 A4 sheets of 4mm thick MDF to cut out the 3 internal support circles.

Step 3: Assemble the lamp

Start by finding the longest of the slats, which should be 320mm, and inserting it into the slots on each of the 3 support circles making sure the circle with the largest internal cutout is at the top of the lamp and the circle with the engraved text is at the bottom.

As you continue inserting the slats make sure they are in the correct size order. each one you add should be 3mm shorter then the previous one. 

Once your lamp is assembled you will need a light fitting to hold a bulb. I used this one from Amazon. This fitting should sit perfectly in the cutout of the middle support circle in the lamp.

Note that is you use a different light fitting the middle circle of the lamp may need to be adjusted to securely hold a different sized fitting.

 

This is quite a complex design so if you have any questions or if I haven't made anything clear please comment below and I'll try to answer any questions.
