Something I've been wanting to do for a long time was bend some wood. No time like the present (read: laid off without a job in sight) to do something about it. I created this mold here out of 7 pieces of 3/4 inch MDF that i glued together and sanded down. I'm planning on sticking it in my Thin Air Press bag, along with a few strips of veneer, and vacuuming out the air to create one side of a wood lamp shade. Repeat for the other side...
Obviously, when it's on the lamp, the shade will have more of this sort of shape. Dig? Deets on fitting the two sides together and attaching them to the lamp are still in the depths of my shallow mind.
