Dog Lamp

Dog LampDog LampMakerspace is working on making kits to sell, things that folks can make at home. Mary has asked if anyone is interested in making wood parts for a dog lamp. Doing a bit of research it appears that dog lamps are a thing, lots of variations available in a wide price range. While I like the visual simplicity and relative uniqueness of the pictured Frank Table Lamp, the Luminose based design has more DIY how to information and seems more suitable for a kit requiring assembly.

Plans

PlansI haven't found any dimensional drawings and I'm not feeling like transcribing all dimensions at this point.

The Instructables DIY head pieces are 3-1/4" wide x 4" long x 1/4" thick and have compound 45 x 3 degree cuts along the 4" edges. Note: it would be better to cut them with a taper fixture on the tablesaw. All the rest of the pieces are made from 1 x 1/2" stock (image for lengths).

The Frank Table Lamp seems like a candidate for the CNC. While I like the design, I wonder how well the legs will stay on when the weather is dry. Something would definitely need to be changed/added when using this design for a speaker box (YAIP - yet another interesting project).
