Make a lamp with blue tape & dowels

Came across this interesting article by Jaime Derringer at design milk on making lamps with blue painter’s tape and wood dowels.  It looks fun and easy to do, especially during a boring rainy day.  If your first one doesn’t work, just rip off the tape and try again!

I might give this a try because I personally own tons of blue painter’s tape for my boat painting projects.  I also have lots of the same type tape in both yellow and green colors.  You only need a saw and the saw you see in the article is a Japanese style pull saw which cuts only on the pull direction.  It cuts better and nicer than traditional western style saws.  More precise.  I have one.  Highly recommended for woodworking, even for little projects.
