Video Alert: How to Make a Lampshade from a Stump

MAKE

I have a serious thing for stray animals, abandoned chairs and large stumps on the side of the road. I'd take them all home if I could and this video of master craftsman Sören Berger just proves my point. Would you think to turn an average chunk of tree stump into a lampshade? You won't be able to think of anything but after you watch this video!

Our friends over at MAKE recently shared this fun video of a wood lathe session where a typical stump is turned into a magnificent lampshade. It's rather mesmerizing and helps put into perspective the labor involved to create such a piece. If only real life had edits and fast forward!

Do you love the look? Let us know below!
