After creating a few practice panels I decided to try making a Japanese style floor lamp. Cheers.

Wow, that’s nice! A lot of work too I’d guess.
Diffused soft light in a beautiful frame, that can’t be wrong.

Very nice!  I want to try that on a future project.  What was your source for the rice paper?

Wonderful result.

I’d like to know more details of how you size and cut/miter the bass strips.

Looks great!  You should look into an LED light that you can change the colors, like a Phillips hue bulb.
PS I wouldn't want have to to dust it!

Beautiful job. I have something similar in mind, only in a table lamp size, and was thinking about using one of the "flickering" LED bulbs to simulate a candle, think that would be striking in a dim room. Flickering LED Bulb
