Fantastic Job! A very quick brief look into how a wooden lampshade is crafted.
Sören Berger is a woodturner, teacher, and inventor with 35 years at the lathe.

Inspiring and wonderful.
He said that 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. We appreciate your care for nature, and assure you that we too have the same regard for what our planet gives to us.
