A shade, a base, a cord, a switch. The familiar elements of a traditional light are rearranged to take shape as Elate, a happy table lamp. Tilted and bent, Elate’s soft angles slant its shade, displaying a playful personality, while a lively colored cord threading through its body adds another cheerful layer.

View the PDF for full instructions and a detailed list of materials & tools Check out my Masterclass video and build Elate along with me: Primarily utilizing the Shaper Workstation, this intricate project involves advanced setups and custom jigging. Beyond working with Origin, Elate dives into electrical wiring, a custom, laminated lamp shade, and even bookmatching if you’re up for an additional challenge. Although this is classified as a 2+ hour project, it is actually quite extensive far beyond 2 hours of work.
