Steps to follow:

Decide on the length of wood you need to make your lamp. You will need to make the frame of the lamp out of laminated pine so you will need 3 x times the length of the outer frame you decided on. Therefore glue 3 pieces of timber together for the frame. Whilst drying we make the base.
