Step 2: Cut List

This is the list of parts that you will need to cut out in order to assemble the lamp. This all should be possible with just a band saw and miter saw. For the band-saw having the push-sled tool and a fence makes making straight accurate cuts much easier. Cutting pieces to length and adding the chamfer was easiest to do on the miter saw and cutting things to width was easiest on the band saw.

Cut List:

  • 1 - 5" x 5" x 3/4" A
  • 4 - 13" x 3/4" x 3/4" B
  • 8 - 3 1/4" x 3/4" x 1/4" C
  • 8 - 7" x 3/4" x 1/4" * D
  • 8 - 5" x 3/4" x 3/4" E
  • 8 - 8" x 1 1/4" x 3/4" * F

The pieces that have a * after them need to have a 45 degree chamfer on both ends so as to form a square when gluing the pieces together. For the pieces with a chamfer wait until starting to assemble everything else. I found that it was easiest to cut those pieces exactly to length when you have everything else to measure and reference to so as to get a tight fit.
