Cat destroyed our old lampshade so I decided to try making a wooden one. Designed on Fusion 360, cut on a Basic Glowforge using 3 full sheets of 1/8" Hard Maple Plywood Proofgrade material. No glue; all 30 parts clip together. It was tough getting everything aligned to clipped together because of the tension in the curved corners. If I had to make it again I would make the horizontal parts that connect to the lamp in the center a little thicker - they are a little flimsy. Would value any feedback or design suggestions.DSC_0047-640x480DSC_0053-640x480DSC_0052-640x480
