Etsy shop PaisleyGarbage is selling this beautiful desk lamp made of U-shaped poplar and acrylic pieces stacked side-by-side. They took to Reddit to share how they made the lamp.

PaisleyGarbage used a 35W laser cutter to prepare the wood and acrylic parts, including the base. They then threaded acrylic rods and used construction adhesive to assemble the wood and acrylic pieces.

Despite its homey aesthetic, the lamp has a geeky touch in the form of its power switch. Paisley Garbage used a reed switch and included a small magnet to toggle the lamp’s power.

Here’s PaisleyGarbage’s full build log:
